As laborers together with God, we should never neglect the precious privilege of prayer. The promise is given us, “Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you. For every one that asketh receiveth; and he that seeketh findeth; and to him that knocketh it shall be opened.” Let us present our petition for grace and counsel, and plead that light be given us, that we may understand the Word. Let us pray for wisdom, that we may know how to communicate that Word for the encouragement of others. — Australasian Union Conference Record, October 14, 1907
These short devotions begin with a promise and finish with a prayerful response from the message. Experience more thoughtful prayers and a deeper appreciation of the power of God’s word.
