Of all the traits Of a life like Christ, there is none higher and more glorious than conformity to Him in the work that now engages Him without ceasing in the Father's presence: His all-powerful intercession. The more we abide in Him and grow to be like Him, the More His priestly life will work in us. Our lives will become what His is a life that continuously prays for men. The place and power of prayer in the Christian life is too little understood. As long as we view prayer simply as the means of maintaining our own Christian lives, we will not fully understand what it is really supposed to be. But when we learn to regard it as the highest part of the work entrusted to us-the root and strength of all other work-we will see that there is nothing we need to study and practice more than the art of praying. The Father waits to hear every prayer of faith. He wants to give us whatever we ask for in Jesus' name. God intents prayer to have an answer, and no one has yet fully conceived what God will do for the child who believes that his prayer will be heard. God hears prayer. Many complain that they don't have the power to pray in faith an effective prayer that accomplishes much. The blessed Jesus is waiting and longing to teach them this. May God open our eyes to understand the holy ministry of intercession to which, as His royal priesthood, we have been set apart. May He give us a large and strong heart to believe what mighty influence our prayers can exert. And may all fear of our being able to fulfill our vocation vanish as we see Jesus, living eternally to pray, living in us to pray, and guaranteeing the results of our prayer life.
Few books have had as much impact on calling the church to prayer as Andrew Murray's classic, With Christ in the School of Prayer. As you saturate yourself in the timeless wisdom found here, you will discover how to prepare yourself for effective participation in the great privilege Christ has extended to believers??to join with Him in intercessory prayer.
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.
