[October 23]
But ye, beloved, building up yourselves on your most holy faith, praying in the Holy Spirit. Jude 20
TO SOME, prayer at any time is irksome, tedious, but to the true Christian prayer constitutes one of the greatest of God's blessings. His privilege of approaching the throne of heavenly grace to obtain mercy and also to find grace to help in every time of need is a privilege the value of which cannot be too highly esteemed.... These blessed privileges of prayer belong to the Lord's family because they are his and have access to him continually through their great Advocate, their Redeemer. Z'09-188 R4419:2(Hymn 241)
