Chapter Excerpt


Chapter One

1 I must take time to come into God's presence, to feel my weakness and my need, and to renew my fellowship with Him.

2 Time alone with the Lord Jesus each day is the indispensable condition of growth and power.

3 Even as a father and his child enjoy being together, so I must have this intimate fellowship with God each day.

4 Let this be my chief object in prayer, to realize the presence of my heavenly Father. Let my goal be: "Alone with God."

5 If I seek fellowship with the Father, I will find Him in His word.

6 May every sight of those in need help urge me to cry to God who alone can help.

7 My source of power in prayer is the Vine. If I am the branches abiding in Christ, He will supply the power.

8 Am I spending time in His presence? Everything depends on this.

9 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. Psalm 63:1

10 O that I would take time daily in His presence to drink in His love.

11 It is only when I am wholly surrendered to the Spirit that I will be able to live according to God's will.

12 Unless I am on my knees I cannot live in His love.

13 A life of prayer will make a life of love to Christ, to other Christians, and to those without Christ.

14 I must ask myself if my prayer is really in accordance with the will of God and the Word of God.

15 My hidden prayer life is inseparably bound up with united prayer.

16 Time I spend in prayer is an offering pleasing to God.

17 The real practice of prayer is when I take hold of God and have communion and fellowship with Him.

18 To experience real prayer I must sacrifice my selfish desires.

"Lord, teach us to pray." Luke 11:1

19 Isn't it worth the trouble to deny myself daily in order to meet God?

20 As I pray, my attitude should be one of silent expectation.

21 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.

22 I pray for grace to live completely for God, whether in sharing with unbelievers or serving His people.

23 I put on Christ by spending time alone in His presence.

24 When I take the time and the trouble to spend time with God, my reward will be great.

25 Much time is needed with the Father if I want to experience the power of God within.

26 In seeking God, in crying for His help-each time it must be with my whole heart.

27 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. Psalm 19:14

28 Prayer is the one power on earth that commands the power of heaven.

29 Even in the midst of my daily schedule I can call out to God.

30 Each day as I spend time in His presence, let this thought be with me: Christ is all.

31 My faith in the great power of love should prepare me for a life in communion with God in prayer.

32 As a Christian, I should pray that I would obey the Word of God and live in the power of Christ's love.

33 There is only one way that I can love my enemies: by the love of Christ, sought and found in prayer.

34 If I pray only for myself, I will not find it easy to be in the right attitude toward God.

35 Love leads me to prayer.

36 As I wait silently before God, I become strong in the assurance of faith.
