On Faith and Prayer

On Faith:
"Faith is worth nothing until it disregards the failure around us and rejoice in the faithfulness above us."  (Vance Havner - Day by Day - A Book of Devotions p. 150)

On Prayer:
"Prayer should be our first reaction, but too often it is our last resort." (Ed Nelson)
"Prayer is much discussed, definitely needed, but seldom practiced." (Lamoyne Sharpe) 


"We  must plead on the basis of His grace and mercy - not on our merit"
Psalms 86:3  Be merciful unto me, O Lord: for I cry unto thee daily.
"What a blesses assurance!  God will answer prayer.  May we believe Him for it." 
Psalms 86:6-7  Give ear, O LORD, unto my prayer; and attend to the voice of my supplications. In the day of my trouble I will call upon thee: for thou wilt answer me.
"A very essential part of our lives in seeking answers to prayer is that we believe His truth and be willing to have Him lead us according to His will." (Ed Nelson)
Psalms 86:11  Teach me thy way, O LORD;
I will walk in thy truth: 
unite my heart to fear thy name.
"When the storm clouds rise and disaster comes, we are so prone to turn from the Lord and accuse Him of being unfair or even cruel.  But note what Jesus would have prayed: (Ed Nelson)
Psalms 86:15  But thou, O Lord, art a God full of compassion,
and gracious, longsuffering, and plenteous in mercy and truth.
 
*Note:  The above quotes were taken from "My Morning Manna" Vol. 3 by Ed Nelson, pages 197-199
