I must take time to come into God's presence,
to feel my weakness and my need,
and to renew my fellowship with Him.
Time alone with the Lord Jesus each day
is the indispensable condition
of growth and power.
Even as a father and his child enjoy
being together, so I must have this
intimate fellowship with God each day.
Let this be my chief object in prayer,
to realize the presence of my heavenly Father.
Let my goal be:
"Alone with God."
If I seek fellowship with the Father,
I will find Him in His word.
May every sight of those in need help urge me
to cry to God who alone can help.
My source of power in prayer is the Vine.
If I am the branches abiding in Christ,
He will supply the power.
Am I spending time in His presence?
Everything depends on this.
The greatest happiness of my life is
that I am loved by the Lord Jesus and
can fellowship with Him every day.
O God, you are my God,
earnestly I seek you.
O that I would take time daily in
His presence to drink in His love.
It is only when I am wholly
surrendered to the Spirit
that I will be able to live
according to God's will.
Unless I am on my knees
I cannot live in His love.
A life of prayer will make a life of love to Christ,
to other Christians, and to those without Christ.
I must ask myself if my prayer is really
in accordance with the will of God
and the Word of God.
My hidden prayer life is inseparably
bound up with united prayer.
Time I spend in prayer is
an offering pleasing to God.
The real practice of prayer is when
I take hold of God and have communion
and fellowship with Him.
To experience real prayer
I must sacrifice my selfish desires.
"Lord, teach us to pray."
Isn't it worth the trouble to deny
myself daily in order to meet God?
As I pray, my attitude should be
one of silent expectation.
When I feel how imperfect my prayer is,
I may bow before God in the confidence that
His Holy Spirit will teach me to pray.
I pray for grace to live completely
for God, whether in sharing with
unbelievers or serving His people.
I put on Christ by spending
time alone in His presence.
When I take the time and the trouble to
spend time with God, my reward will be great.
Much time is needed with the Father if
I want to experience the power of God within.
In seeking God, in crying for His help-each
time it must be with my whole heart.
Spending time with God until I know I desire
to serve Him with my whole heart gives me
the assurance that God hears my prayer.
May the words of my mouth
and the meditation of my heart
be pleasing in your sight.
Prayer is the one power on earth
that commands the power of heaven.
Even in the midst of my daily schedule
I can call out to God.
Each day as I spend time in His presence,
let this thought be with me: Christ is all.
My faith in the great power of
love should prepare me for a life
in communion with God in prayer.
As a Christian, I should pray that
I would obey the Word of God
and live in the power of Christ's love.
There is only one way that I can love my enemies:
by the love of Christ, sought and found in prayer.
If I pray only for myself,
I will not find it easy to be in
the right attitude toward God.
Love leads me to prayer.
As I wait silently before God,
I become strong in the assurance of faith.
