King's Business - 1922-11

1194 Lord, Teach IJs to Pray In twenty-three Sermons, the great preacher, Dr. Alexander Whyte, dis­ courses on certain Bible types of prayer as illustrated by those of Moses, Eli­ jah, Job, Paul and Christ, and leads us into the consideration of some as­ pects and methods of prayer, such as its costliness, reverence, the pleading note, the forgiving spirit, and the end­ less quest. (Doran.) Price, $2. MEDITATION AND PRAYER If Bible-reading is like getting your friend’s letter, then prayer is like a visit from your friend. If I know my friend and I are soon to meet, how glad I am to think of the moments we shall spend together! How I try to make the most of them! I go over in my mind all that has happened since we last met; I note what I have to tell him; I put down the questions I wish to ask him. There are books I have been reading or am going to read; people I have been seeing or am hoping to see; things I have been doing PRAYER REPETITION St. Augustine tells us that he once spent all night long in the single prayer, “Noverim te Domine, noverim me.” “Oh, Lord, may I know Thee, may I know myself.” Such a prayer does not break our Lord’s command concerning vain rep­ etition so long as it continues to be in­ tense and fervent. Our Lord sometimes spent whole nights in prayer, and in Gethsemane He prayed thrice, ever using the same words; but the more and more a prayer becomes a mechanical weariness, the more and more it becomes a ceremonial form, the more and more the lips repeat it; but the heart cannot follow it; it ceases to be prayer, and becomes but mockery.— Farrar.

Now, is there any preparation of that kind before we pray? Might we not at least think an instant or two before we kneel, and go over what we have to say?—R. W. Barbour.
