“I have been crucified with Christ and I no longer live, but Christ lives in me.”-Galatians2:20.
Christ is our life. “No longer I, but Christ lives in me.” When we become Christians, the life in Him and the life in us are identical. They are one and the same. His life in heaven is an ever-praying life. When it descends and takes possession of us, it does not lose its character. In us, it is also the ever-praying life—a life that without ceasing asks and receives from God. And this is not as if there were two separate currents of prayer rising upward, one from Him and one from His people. No, but the substantial way in which our life is united with His life also means our prayers are united with His prayers. What He prays passes through us; what we pray passes through Him.
- Andrew Murray
How watchful we need to be to guard against our tendency to hinder the flow of the divinely originated prayer current, and so rob our own souls and other souls as well. The channels must be free from all obstructions. The soul must keep in accord with Christ in order that He may live in us in an ever praying-life.
