A Word on Prayer

“Turn the Bible into prayer. Thus, if you were reading the First Psalm, spread the Bible on the chair before you, and kneel and pray, ‘O Lord, give me the blessedness of the man’; ‘let me not stand in the counsel of the ungodly.’

This is the best way of knowing the meaning of the Bible, and of learning to pray.”

– Robert Murray M’Cheyne (1813-1843)

    Interesting. I did not know that M’Cheyne had said this.

    Check out my blog – I have been doing this with the New Testament – parts of it any way.
