Bring real in prayer

This from Andrew Murray’s “With Christ in the school of prayer.”

My prayer is not answered by God as a result of what I try to be when praying, but because of what I am when I’m not praying.

Seeking God more than his blessing

This from Andrew Murray’s “With Christ in the school of prayer.”

We seek God’s gifts, but God wants to give us Himself first. We think of prayer as the means of extracting good gifts from heaven, and we think of Christ as the means to draw ourselves up to God. We want to stand at the door and cry. Christ wants us to enter in and realize that we are friends and children.
