“Our early training, the teaching of the Church, the influence of habit, the stirring of the emotions—how easily these lead to prayer which has no spiritual power, and avails but little….True prayer…must be to the glory of God, in full surrender to His will, in full assurance of faith, in the name of Jesus, and with a perseverance that, if need be, refuses to be denied. All this must be learned” Andrew Murray (ref#19, FIRST LESSON).
Reasons for Waiting for GOD:
Because You have separated me from the peoples that I should be Yours (Lev 20:26), I will wait for You.
Because You establish Your covenant between You and me, to be a GOD to me (Gen 17:7), I will wait for You.
Because You consecrate and make me holy (Lev 22:32), I will wait for You.
Because You are the LORD who sanctifies me (Lev 20:8), I will wait for You.
