October Surprise 2022: "A Call to Prayer." Day 31

October 31, 2022 - Inspired by J.C. Ryle's

Ryle's treatise on prayer.

Well, we made it! Day 31 of our October Surprise (no need to look at the calendar!)

J.C. Ryle once again encourages us to pray.

"What more can a man want to lead him to take any step in religion than the things I have just told him about prayer? What more could be done to make the path to the mercy seat easy and to remove all occasions of stumbling from the sinner's way? Surely if the devils in hell had such a door set open before them, they would leap for gladness, and make the very pit ring with joy.

"But where will the man hide his head at last who neglects such glorious encouragements? What can possibly be said for the man who, after all, dies without prayer? Surely I may feel anxious that you should not be that man. Surely I may well ask—Do you pray?"

J.C. Ryle

1. God is merciful and makes prayer our opportunity.

2. Jesus not only prayers, intercedes for us, but in Christ, our prayers are seen as His prayers,

3. The Holy Ghost serves the same offices for us, and uniquely points to Jesus and His kingdom.

3. Promises ignite prayer.

4. Prayer is powerful

5. Now, he reminds us of our opportunity.

"What a man is on his knees before God, that he is and nothing more."
