On Prayer -From my Reading Corner-



I am reading a great book by John Bunyan, Prayer; and I  would like to share with you some of the lines that must be written down, and remembered, and lived.

"With God is plenty of grace, even as in a river there is plenty of water. 

A pond, a pool, a cistern, will hold much, but a river will hold more. 

From this throne {of grace} come rivers and streams of water of life, 

to satisfy those that come for life to the throne of God. 

Further, as by a river is showed what abundance of grace proceeds from God through Christ, 

so it shows the unsatiable thirst and desire of one that comes indeed aright to the throne of grace for mercy. 

Nothing but rivers will satisfy such a soul; 

ponds, pools, and cisterns, will do nothing...

They that are saved, are saved to receive abundance of grace; 

'They which receive abundance of grace, and of the gift of righteousness, 

shall reign in life by One, 

Jesus Christ'-

Rom 5:7"

And he continues saying,

"What comes from this throne of grace is pure grace, 

and nothing else; 

clear grace, free grace, grace that is not mixed, 

nor need be mixed with works of righteousness which we have done; 

it is of itself sufficient to answer all our wants, 

to heal all our diseases, and to help us at a time of need. 

It is grace that chooses, 

it is grace that calls, 

it is grace that preserves, 

and it is grace that brings to glory: 

even the grace that like a river of water of life proceeds from this throne. 

And hence it is that, 

from first to last, 

we must cry, 

'Grace, grace unto it!' 

(Zec 4:7)"

If I am happy it is because of God! God, in His sovereign grace, has called me out of darkness into His Admirable light. He has opened my eyes and has shown me the way to Eternal Life. He has set my feet on a journey, and now I am walking Daily on My Way to Heaven. I did not find Jesus, He found me. I did not seek Him, yet He called me. I did not love Him, yet He loved me. I deserved death and He gave me Life. This is the place where I keep a journal of my life under His sun and by His grace!

Borrowed Words

"It becomes us to spend this life only as a journey toward heaven... to which we should subordinate all other concerns of life. Why should we labor for or set our hearts on anything else, but that which is our proper end and true happiness?"

Jonathan Edwards

"I am still pondering God's greatness in His creation. I have so many questions that I would like to ask the Lord about the universe, creation, the fall of man... But when I'm in heaven, I wonder if I will even remember them. At that time, being in the presence of God will be enough. I'm thankful that I can look forward to that day."


“Heaven is not here, it’s There. If we were given all we wanted here, our hearts would settle for this world rather than the next. God is forever luring us up and away from this one, wooing us to Himself and His still invisible Kingdom, where we will certainly find what we so keenly long for.”

- Elisabeth Elliot, Keep a Quiet Heart
