Jesus said, "When thou prayest, enter into thine inner chamber, and having shut thy door, pray to thy Father which is in secret." (See Matthew 6:6 RV.) This means two things. First, shut the world out, and withdraw from all worldly thoughts and activities. Second, shut yourself in alone with God, to pray to Him in secret. Let this be your chief aim in prayer: to realize the presence of your heavenly Father. Let your watchword be, "Alone with God." -Andrew Murray
From time spent alone in prayer, Andrew Murray discovered that every Christian can expect God to reveal Himself in intimate, powerful, and soul-restoring ways. In this collection of 120 daily devotions, Murray reveals spiritual gems of truth about the personal revelation we can access when we abide with Christ in our secret prayer spaces. Through those intimate hours spent with your Savior, you will experience the depths of God's abiding presence, the joyful sense of peace that comes from fellowship with our heavenly Father, and the abundant life in Christ that is available to all who seek it. You will discover that God has already granted you everything you will ever need, and that He delights in saying "yes" to you!
South African pastor and author Andrew Murray, (1828-1917), one of four children was raised in the most remote corner of the world - Graaff-Reinet (near the Cape), South Africa, It was here, after his formal education in Scotland and three years of theological study,in Holland, that Andrew Murray returned as a missionary and minister. Murray's first appointment was to a remote and unattractive territory of nearly 50,000 square miles and 12,000 people.
In 1873, he helped to establish the Huguenot Seminary for girls. He also served as the first president of the Young Men's Christian Fellowship (YMCA).
Not only was Andrew Murray the author of over 240 books, he was also a man of great prayer. He began writing on the "deeper Christian life" - a favorite subject for Murray - for his congregation as an extension of his local pastoral work, but he became internationally known for his books, such as With Christ in the School of Prayerand Abide in Christ, that searched men's hearts and brought them into a deep relationship with Christ. Writing with an intensity of purpose and zeal for the message of the Gospel, Murray wrote numerous books even after his retirement at age seventy-eight. .- Publisher.
