Sunday Soothings

Psalm 123:1 A Song of degrees. Unto thee lift I up mine eyes, O thou that dwellest in the heavens.”

“Cultivate the spirit of prayer, and it will become to you not so much an exercise at stated seasons of the day, as a habit wherever you are. On the street or anywhere, be in touch with the throne.” – Gordon Watt

“The intercessor must get into the watchtower, and look out, through cleansed eyes, upon the whole earth, and as he looks he will remember that it is Christ’s world and not the Devil’s. The earth is the field of the redemptive operations and our prayer activities.” – W. Graham Scroogie

“Frequently the answers are not the speediest… A prayer may be all the longer on its voyage because it is bringing a heavier freight of blessing. Delayed answers are not only trials of faith, but they give us an opportunity of honoring God by our steadfast confidence in Him under apparent repulses.” – Charles Spurgeon

“It takes good time for the full flow of God into the Spirit. Short devotions cut the pipe of God’s full flow. It takes time in the secret places to get the full revelation of God. Little time and hurry mar the picture.” – E. M. Bounds

“Prayer is something deeper than words. It is present in the soul before it has been formulated in words. And it abides in the soul after the last words of prayer passed our lips. Prayer is an attitude of our hearts, an attitude of our mind. Prayer is a definite attitude of our hearts toward God, an attitude which He in Heaven immediately recognizes as prayer, as an appeal to His heart.” – O. Hallesby
