How many people I know just like that! What drives them is the same thing driving Saul: pride (v 17) and fear (v 24).

Prov. 24:3 Through wisdom is an house builded; and by understanding it is established:

Psa. 78:34 When he slew them, then they sought him: and they returned and inquired early after God.

Psa. 103:2 Bless the LORD, O my soul, and forget not all his benefits:


Blessed Lord:

MY Father is rich in houses and lands,

My Father’s own Son, the Savior of men,


Loving Lord and Living Master:

Music from the soul is the soul of music. The Psalmist teaches me about

  • I call all that is inside me to remember your benefits, because you cannot be

He holdeth the wealth of the world in His hands! Of rubies and diamonds, of silver and gold, His coffers are full, He has riches untold.

Once wandered on earth as the poorest of them; But now He is pleading our pardon on high, That we may be His, when He comes by and by.

Let prayer be raised by our entire church. Let us do it early rather than late. Let us not wait to seek you until you have slain us! Where two or three come together and pray, there will always come an answer of peace. If the prayer of even one of us prevails with you, then surely the prayer of our whole body will result in the multiplication of our flock in the fulfillment of your Eternal Purpose. When Israel fell to Ai, it was not just because Achan carried the accursed thing into their camp. It was because they said, Let not all the people labour thither. So a part of the people were allowed to lie at ease. Our church will always have

“soul music” when he strums his inner self first, as he magnifies the Lord. Like Shakespeare he soliloquizes. He holds self-communion. He has an inner meditation. He self-talks, and exhorts himself as though he feels like boredom of the spirit was the worst boredom of all. He believes apathy will overcome him (as indeed it does me) unless he watches diligently. Lord, you are worthy of my praise, in that highest style of adoration intended by the term bless. You give me mental and emotional capacities so they can join in a chorus of praise to you. I should not forget even one of your great

you can know that on any given day, dozens of other people are lifting their hearts in
the same mind to God. Pray what is written, but use what is prayed as a springboard
for your own relationship with God. You learn to pray by praying.

“Oh,” says one, “I live in the spirit of prayer, and therefore I do not need times
and seasons for prayer.” And do you think that Christ did not live in the spirit of
prayer? Yet He had to have his special time and place to pray. Do not fall under the
injurious notion that because your spirit cries to God in prayer all day long, therefore
there must not be some season for more immediately coming into God’s presence. If
you imagine this, I am afraid that it will prove a snare to your feet. The Lord Jesus
Christ, who knew better than you do that the main thing is the spirit of prayer rather
than the act of prayer, yet Himself retired into desert places to maintain the act and
exercise of prayer. Be spiritual. Be baptized into the spirit of prayer. But do not be
deceived by the enemy, who can steal a spirit away while we dream that we only
spiritualize it. We had better preserve the very bones of prayer—the posture, the
time, place—rather than let it all ooze away into an impalpable mental condition.
God keep us prayerful. He will do so if He makes us like His dear Son.
