Wonderful Results of Prayer (1)
The man who truly prays gets from God many things denied to the prayerless man. The aim of all real praying is to get the thing prayed for, as the child’s cry for bread has for its end the getting of bread. This view removes prayer clean out of the sphere of religious performances. Prayer is not acting a part or going through religious motions. Prayer is neither official nor formal nor ceremonial, but direct, hearty, intense. Prayer is not religious work that must be gone through, and that avails because it is well done. Rather, prayer is the helpless and needy child crying to the compassion of the Father’s heart and the bounty and power of the Father’s hand. The answer is as sure to come as the Father’s heart can be touched and the Father’s hand be moved. (Purchase Book)
