October Surprise 2022: A Call to Prayer Day 6

October Surprise 2022: A Call to Prayer Day 6

October 6, 2022 - Inspired by J.C. Ryle’s treatise on Prayer.

The extended introduction for our October episodes ends at the 7:20 mark, and while there is some benefit (I believe) in listening to it again, if you would like, you can fast forward to that mark and begin the episode.

“I have read the lives of many eminent Christians who have been on earth since the Bible days. Some of them, I see, were rich, and some poor. Some were learned, and some unlearned. Some of them were Episcopalians and some Christians of other names. Some were Calvinists, and some were Arminians. Some have loved to use a liturgy, and some to use none. But one thing, I see, they all had in common. They have all been men of Prayer.”

J. C. Ryle

We follow a quick sample of our great cloud of witnesses on Prayer:

“Prayer is the key that opens heaven; the favors we ask descend upon us the very instant our prayers ascend to God.”

St Augustine

When we go to God in Prayer, the devil knows we go to fetch strength against him, and therefore he opposes us all he can.

The Bible is a letter God has sent us; Prayer is a letter we send Him.

Matthew Henry

Prayer should be the natural outflow of the soul: you should pray because you must pray, not because the set time for praying has arrived, but because your heart must cry unto your Lord.

Charles Spurgeon

The evangelization of the world depends first upon a revival of Prayer.

Andrew Murray

If you have never had difficulty in Prayer, it is absolutely certain that you have never prayed.

Dr. Martin Lloyd-Jones

If we fail to cultivate this discipline, Prayer winds up being our last resort rather than our first response.

Chuck Swindoll

Whatever else the Song of Solomon teaches us, it teaches us we will see the object of our soul’s love.

I must arise now and go about the city; In the streets and in the squares I must seek him whom my soul loves.’

Song of Solomon 2:2

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

Robert Murray M’Cheyne
