"But I give myself unto prayer."

"But I give myself unto prayer." 
 Psalm 109:4

Lying tongues were busy against the reputation of David, 
but he did not defend himself; he moved the case into a higher court,
 and pleaded before the great King Himself. 

Prayer is the safest method of replying to words of hatred.
 The Psalmist prayed in no cold-hearted manner, 
he gave himself to the exercise--threw his whole soul and heart into it--straining every sinew and muscle, 
as Jacob did when wrestling with the angel. 

Thus, and thus only, shall any of us speed at the throne of grace. 
As a shadow has no power because there is no substance in it, even so that supplication, 
in which a man's proper self is not thoroughly present in agonizing earnestness and vehement desire, 
is utterly ineffectual, for it lacks that which would give it force. 

"Fervent prayer," says an old divine, 
"like a cannon planted at the gates of heaven, makes them fly open." 
The common fault with the most of us is our readiness to yield to distractions. 

Our thoughts go roving hither and thither, and we make little progress towards our desired end.
 Like quicksilver our mind will not hold together, 
but rolls off this way and that. 

How great an evil this is! It injures us, and what is worse, it insults our God. 
What should we think of a petitioner, 
if, while having an audience with a prince, 
he should be playing with a feather or catching a fly? 

Continuance and perseverance are intended in the expression of our text.
 David did not cry once, and then relapse into silence; 
his holy clamour was continued till it brought down the blessing. 

Prayer must not be our chance work, but our daily business, our habit and vocation. 
As artists give themselves to their models, 
and poets to their classical pursuits, 
so must we addict ourselves to prayer. 

We must be immersed in prayer as in our element, 
and so pray without ceasing. 
Lord, teach us so to pray that we may be more and more prevalent in supplication.

If you are not a believer in Jesus Christ, 

you can be accepted in to his kingdom. 

 I invite you to let him to make of you what 

He always wanted. 

Marvelous God Almighty, 
I come to you in the precious name of Jesus, 
who died for me to make me free of sin, 
 I want Jesus to enter in to my heart and make me free. 
I confess that He is the son of God. 
I ask to change my heart and to give me wisdom to understand your Holy Word full of promises of eternal value, not only to live on this earth, but to be expectant of my life in heaven.
 In the precious name of Jesus I ask. 
“The true minister of Christ knows that the true value of a sermon must lie, 
 not in its fashion and manner,
 but in the truth which it contains.” 
.... Reflection and inspiration from the "Prince of Preachers,"
 Charles Haddon Spurgeon.

 The purpose of these pages is to share the precious word of God, 
without acquiring any monetary reward. 
God gave me the salvation for free, 
so I share the gospel of his word the same way ..
