At That Day

Posted in prayers from history tagged at 5:00 am by blync77

O my God! in holy awe I bow before Thee, the Three in One.  Again I have seen how the mystery of prayer is the mystery of the Holy Trinity.  I adore the Father who ever hears, and the Son who ever lives to pray, and the Holy Spirit, proceeding from the Father and the Son, to lift us up into the fellowship of that ever-blessed, never-ceasing asking and receiving.  I bow, my God, in adoring worship, before the infinite condescension that thus, through the Holy Spirit, takes us and our prayers into the Divine Life, and its fellowship of love.
 
O my Blessed Lord Jesus! teach me to understand Thy lesson, that it is the indwelling Spirit, streaming from Thee, uniting to Thee, who is the Spirit of prayer.  Teach me what it is as an empty, wholly consecrated vessel, to yield myself to His being my life.  Teach me to honour and trust Him, as a living Person, to lead my life and my prayer.  Teach me specially in prayer to wait in holy silence, and give Him place to breathe within me His unutterable intercession.  And teach me that through Him it is possible to pray without ceasing, and to pray without failing, because He makes me partaker of the never-ceasing and never-failing intercession in which Thou, the Son, dost appear before the Father.  Yea, Lord, fulfil in me Thy promise, ‘At that day ye shall ask in my Name.  Verily, verily, I say unto you, whatsoever ye shall ask the Father in my Name, that will He give.’  Amen.
 
~In My Name, Rev. Andrew Murray, 1896

‘In that day ye shall ask me nothing.  Verily, verily, I say unto you, whatsoever ye shall ask the Father in my Name, He will give it you.  Hitherto ye have asked nothing in my Name; ask, and ye shall receive, that your joy may be full.      John 16: 23-24

 At that day ye shall ask in my Name:  and I say not unto you, that I will pray the Father for you, for the Father Himself loveth you, because ye have loved me, and have believed that I came out from God.’                                John 16:26-27
 
…praying in the Holy Ghost, keep yourselves in the love of God…’         Jude 20, 21
