October 18, 2022 - Inspired by J.C. Ryle's treatise on Prayer.
We truncated our introduction for the last half of our October episodes. Our shorter introduction ends at the 3:18 mark if you would like to skip to that mark. This way, you have less to wade through.
Today we concentrate on Ryle’s remarkable insight that although many live so, their piety is seen by others…
“But a man seldom goes into his closet, and pours out his soul before God in secret, unless he is in earnest.”
Only a man in earnest bows amid terrible sorrow and pray:
And the king said to Zadok, “Return the ark of God to the city. If I find favor in the sight of the LORD, then He will bring me back again, and show me both it and His habitation. 26 “But if He should say thus, ‘I have no delight in you,’ behold, here I am, let Him do to me as seems good to Him.”
2 Samuel 15: 25-26
In sincerity, David prayed, and in sincerity, he was able to leave God's presence and walk shoeless to his refuge even as he wept, trusting in God even though He said… ‘I have no delight in you,’ behold, here I am, let Him do to me as seems good to Him.”
“What a man is on his knees before God, that he is and nothing more.”
