« Prev That we are to be urgent in prayers. Next »

120. That we are to be urgent in prayers.

In the Epistle of Paul to the Colossians:  “Be instant in prayer, and watch therein.”46354635    Col. iv. 2. Also in the first Psalm: “But in the law of the Lord is his will, and in His law will he meditate day and night.”46364636    Ps. i. 2. The Oxford edition continues: “Likewise in Solomon; ‘Be not hindered from praying ever, and delay not unto death to be justified; for the repayment of the Lord abideth for ever.’” [In a day when there were few Bibles, and no printed books, no concordances, and no published collections of this sort, reflect on the value of this treatise to a young believer, and on the labour of his pastor in making it.]
