Prayer and the Soul

I have been overwhelmed lately by the power of prayer.  No matter our circumstances, prayer to the Almighty God is the answer to a settled soul.  I’ve been finding myself praying often and praying out loud – and it’s powerful to the troubled soul!

I ran across this quote by JC Ryle tonight – a beautiful picture of prayer and growth in Christ…

“Prayer is the one great secret of spiritual prosperity. When there is frequent private communion with God, your soul will grow like the grass after the rain; when the communication is infrequent, everything will come to a stop, you will barely keep your soul alive. Show me a growing Christian, a strong Christian, a flourishing Christian, and I am sure, that he is one that speaks often with his Lord. He asks much, and he has much. He tells Jesus everything, and so he always knows how to act.”
