Oswald Chambers on Prayer

Here are some quoted from the book "Prayer A Holy Occupation" by Oswald Chambers:

"Jesus says there are times when our heavenly Father will appear as if He were a most unnatural father, callous and indifferent. But remember, says Jesus, I have told you - 'everyone who asks receives.' When we get into spiritual confusion the usual way out is to say we have made a blunder, and we go back instead of forward. 'I don't know what to do; I am up against a stone wall.' Will you "hang in' to what Jesus said? If there is a shadow on the face of God the Father just now, remain confident that ultimately He will give His clear issue as Jesus said. It is not a question of black or white, or right or wrong, of being in communion or out of communion; but a question of God taking us by a way which in the meantime we do not understand."

"What is one issue about which God seems indifferent to me? Is my response one of faith or doubt?"

"So many of us limit our praying because we are not reckless in our confidence in God. In the eyes of those who do not know God, it is madness to trust Him, but when we pray in the Holy Spirit we begin to realize the resources of God, that He is our perfect heavenly Father, and we are His children."

"How will I pray and how will I behave today in response to the assurance of God's sovereignty?"

Blessings,
Linda

Good words from Chambers. I often realize I don't take full advantage of the power of prayer, and God wants us to do just that.

I love to read Oswald Chambers, though he's a bit cerebral for me at times! Beautiful post.

I am at peace with my relationship with God and love our time together in prayer. I also enjoy praying with others and that can be very enriching too. However, our time together, alone is tender, loving, and holds a special place in my heart.

I try to remember that the homeless man on the street or that bag lady I meet could be the Holy spirit himself and act accordingly. I try to treat everyone with respect and courtesy.
