  MEDITATIONS ON THE TRUE CHRISTIAN LIFE

By Glenn H. Jackson

 

 

______...."This book of the law [the Word of God] shall not depart from [always be in] your mouth, but you shall meditate on it day and night, so that you may be careful [take heed] to do according to all that is written in it; for THEN you will make your way prosperous, and THEN you will have success".... Joshua 1:8 NASB

 

 

 

"I AM THE WAY"

 

[part 8 of 8]

 

 

*____Prayer should be as natural as breathing and as enjoyable as eating.

 

____Prayer should be as unconscious as our communication with each other.

 

____It should not be the child of need, but should be based on a spiritual fellowship with the Father and with the Master so that our needs are His needs; for we are not our own, we are a part of Him.

 

____Our body is not our own.

 

____The property we control is not our own.

 

____Our abilities are not our own.

 

____They are all His.

 

____So we are laboring together with Him, and what we have considered personal needs are really His needs.

 

____The work that we are doing is His work, so that prayer is not what we have thought it was; but it is a fellowship, a sharing; it is community interest.

 

____We are one in this, just as the vine and the branch are one. The branch cannot bear fruit alone, and the vine cannot bear fruit without the branch.

 

____So prayer is simply talking it over with Him, getting His views, His will, His plans, and our carrying out those plans with His grace, ability and wisdom.

 

____Habits are children of our choice.

 

____We are what we make ourselves.

 

____This prayer habit will be born of your own will.

 

____This habit is hard to form for most people. It should never be a duty, for just as we do not enjoy those who visit us because it is their duty, so it is with the Father.

 

____We want those who love us to come because they cannot help it.

 

____Prayer is a visit with our Father.

 

____We should think of it as a rare opportunity.

this is so beautiful and such a testimony to the Lord's healing power and sanctification through our suffering. Much of my walk with Christ is similar to yours.
