Text of the Day

 

 

  

 

JANUARY 3

Pray without ceasing—1. Thes. 5:17.

  Whatever might be our natural inclinations with reference to definiteness and persistency in prayer, we must take our instructions from the Scriptures; and overcoming our natural predilections, we must as “little children” and as “dear children” conform our views and conduct to the instruction which is from above. Let us all, therefore, remember the words, “Ask [in My name], and ye shall receive, that your joy may be full” (John 16:24). The Heavenly Father has multiplied mercies, blessings and providences in store for His obedient and faithful children who will ask for them.
