NOVEMBER 3

 

 Watch and pray, that ye enter not into temptation: the spirit indeed is willing, but the flesh is weakó

Matt.26:41

 

 Some make the mistake of praying without watching; others make the mistake of watching without praying; but the safe and only proper method is that which our Lord directed, to combine the two. We are to watch for all the encouragements of the Lordís Word, the evidence of their fulfilment and the signs that betoken His presence and the great changes of dispensation just at band. We are to watch for everything that will strengthen us in faith and hope and loyalty and love; and while watching we are to pray without ceasing. We are to pray together as the Lordís people; we are to pray in our homes, as families; we are to pray in secret, in private.
