“In God I will praise His word; in God I have put my trust; I will not fear what flesh can do to me.”-Psalm 56:4.
He who would maintain a close ongoing conversation with the Lord must habitually find in the Scriptures the highway of such companionship. God’s aristocracy, His nobility, the princes of His realm, are not the wise, mighty, and highborn of earth, but often the poor, weak, despised of men, who abide in His presence, and devoutly commune with Him through His inspired word.
- A.T. Pierson in “George Mueller of Bristol.”
There is no fuel for prayer like the Word of God. When the fires on our personal altars burn low meditation upon the word of God is the fuel that will make them flame up again. It is well to pray as we read, taking some thought suggested by the Scripture, some promise or some precept and incorporating it into our prayers. This will give variety to our prayer life and constantly enrich our souls.
