Everywhere And Everywhen

Wise words from G. Morgan Campbell:

The Christian is to seek the upper things, setting his mind upon them, and everywhere and everywhen he is to be hoping for, and endeavoring after, the ultimate. That is the simple meaning of prayer: reaching forward, wishing forward, desiring forward, seeking the upper, the higher, the nobler.

The Bible is clear, too, about us praying everywhere and everywhen for the very best

  • We ought always to pray and not to turn coward, faint, lose heart, and give up (Luke 18:1, AMP)
  • God has seen how I never stop praying for you (Romans 1:9, CEV)
  • For I always pray to the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory, that He may grant you a spirit of wisdom and revelation (Ephesians 1:17, AMP)
  • In all my prayers for all of you, I always pray with joy (Philippians 1:4, NIV)
  • Our prayers for you are always spilling over into thanksgivings. We can’t quit thanking God our Father and Jesus our Messiah for you! (Colossians 1:3, MSG)
  • Epaphras always prays earnestly for you, asking God to make you strong and perfect, fully confident that you are following the whole will of God (Colossians 4:12, NLT)
  • We always thank God for all of you and pray for you constantly (1 Thessalonians 1:2, NLT)
  • We ought always to thank God for you, and rightly so, because your faith is growing more and more (2 Thessalonians 1:3, NIV)
  • I give thanks to my God for you always when I mention you in my prayers (Philemon 1:4, AMP)
  • Pray for us. We have no doubts about what we’re doing or why, but it’s hard going and we need your prayers (Hebrews 13:18, MSG)

Someone needs your prayers today.

Will you keep on praying for a friend that he or she will be able to:

…reach forward

…wish forward

…desire forward

…seek the upper, the higher, the nobler!

From The Library Of A.W. Tozer (book review)

From The Library Of A.W. Tozer is an incredible gift from James Stuart Bell to not only fans of A.W. Tozer, but anyone who loves the spiritual classics.

A.W. Tozer was a prolific and influential author in the Pentecostal evangelical circles beginning in the 1960s, but his writings are still influencing thousands today. In reading Tozer, it is obvious that the Scripture is his first and foremost text, but it is equally as obvious that Tozer was a well-read student of the classics. In this compilation, James Stuart Bell gives us access to Tozer’s library. We can read for ourselves the writings that influenced the fertile and productive mind of Aiden Wilson Tozer.

Nicely arranged in eight broad sections, you will read the profound thoughts of Augustine, John Bunyan, Martin Luther, William Law, Charles Spurgeon, Dwight Moody, A.B. Simpson, and G. Morgan Campbell, to name just a few of my favorites. This is a book that you will not only pick up often, but one that will whet your appetite to read more of these classic works yourself.

A wonderful read!
