    Consolation for the despairing

    ‘For I said in my haste, I am cut off from before thine eyes: nevertheless thou heardest the voice of my supplications when I cried unto thee.’ Psalm 31:22
    SUGGESTED FURTHER READING: Psalm 107:1–32

    When David feared that he was cut off from God, he was wise enough to take to crying. He calls prayer crying, and it is a very significant word. Crying is the language of pain; pain cannot cumber itself with letters, syllables and words, and so it takes its own way and adopts a piercing mode of utterance, very telling and expressive. Crying yields great relief to suffering. Every one knows the benefit of having a hearty good cry: you cannot help calling it ‘a good cry’, for, though one would think crying could never be especially good, yet it affords a desirable relief. Red eyes often relieve breaking hearts. Madness has been prevented by the soul’s finding vent. Prayer is the surest and most blessed vent for the soul. In prayer the heart runs over as the eyelids do in crying.

    To pray is just as simple a matter as to cry. Do not get down that book: bishops and other prayer-makers can write good prayers for people who have no particular trouble upon them, but when you really need to pray, no ready-made prayers will suit your case. You never heard of a form of common crying. I never recollect seeing in my life a form of crying for a bereaved woman, a form for a babe to cry when it is hungry, and another form for a child to cry when it is put to bed in the dark. No, forms are out of the question when we cry. Men, women and children, when in trouble, cry without a book; and so when a man really wants the Saviour, he does not require prayer-books. Never say, ‘I cannot pray!’ My dear friend, can you cry? You want to be saved; tell the Lord that. If you cannot say it in words, tell it with your tears, your groans, your sighs, your sobs. Prayer, like crying, is a natural utterance, and an utterance available on all occasions.

    FOR MEDITATION: The great turning-point for the children of Israel enslaved in Egypt was when they cried to God for help (Exodus 2:23–25; 3:7–10). God loves to save those who in faith cry to him for help (Psalm 34:6, 17; Luke 18:7–8) and the Lord Jesus Christ demonstrated this on many occasions (Matthew 9:27–29; 14:30–31; 15:22–23, 28; 20:29–34; Mark 9:23–25).

    Jesus interceding for transgressors

    ‘And made intercession for the transgressors.’ Isaiah 53:12
    SUGGESTED FURTHER READING: 1 Timothy 2:1–8

    If Christ appears in heaven for us, let us be glad to appear on earth for him. He owns us before God and the holy angels; let us not be ashamed to confess him before men and devils. If Christ pleads with God for men, let us not be backward to plead with men for God. If he by his intercession saves us to the uttermost, let us hasten to serve him to the uttermost. If he spends eternity in intercession for us, let us spend our time in intercession for his cause. If he thinks of us, we ought also to think of his people and especially supplicate for his afflicted. If he watches our cases and adapts his prayers to our necessities, let us observe the needs of his people and plead for them with understanding.

    Alas, how soon do men weary of pleading for the Lord. If a whole day is set apart for prayer and the meeting is not carefully managed, it readily becomes a weariness of the flesh. Prayer-meetings very easily lose their flame and burn low. Shame on these laggard spirits and this heavy flesh of ours, which needs to be pampered with liveliness and brevity, or we go to sleep at our devotions. Forever is not too long for him to plead, and yet an hour tries us here. On and on and on through all the ages, still his intercession rises to the throne, and yet we flag and our prayers are half dead in a short season.

    See, Moses lets his hands hang down, and Amalek is defeating Joshua in the plain! Can we endure to be thus losing victories and causing the enemy to triumph? If your ministers are unsuccessful, if your labourers for Christ in foreign lands make little headway, and if the work of Christ drags, is it not because in the secret place of intercession we have but little strength? The restraining of prayer is the weakening of the church.

    FOR MEDITATION: Although we are unable to match the everlasting nature of Christ’s intercession for us (Hebrews 7:25), our intercessions on behalf of others are supposed to be wide-ranging (1 Timothy 2:1–2). Giving up is not an option, because the Holy Spirit is ever-present to help us in our weakness (Romans 8:26–27).

    The consecration of priests

    ‘This is the thing that thou shalt do unto them to hallow them, to minister unto me in the priest’s office.’ Exodus 29:1
    SUGGESTED FURTHER READING: Revelation 5:6–14

    Under the law only one family could serve God in the priest’s office, but under the gospel all the saints are ‘a chosen generation, a royal priesthood’ (1 Peter 2:9). In the Christian church no persons whatsoever are set apart to the priesthood above the rest of their brethren, for in us is fulfilled the promise which Israel by reason of her sin failed to obtain—‘ye shall be unto me a kingdom of priests’.

    Paul, in addressing all the saints, bids them present their ‘bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto God, which is’ their ‘reasonable service’. It is the grand design of all the works of divine grace, both for us and in us, to fit us for the office of the spiritual priesthood, and it will be the crown of our perfection when with all our brethren we shall sing unto the Lord Jesus the new song, ‘Unto him that loved us, and washed us from our sins in his own blood, and hath made us kings and priests unto God and his Father; to him be glory and dominion for ever and ever.’

    This honour have all the saints: according to Peter (1 Peter 2:2–5) it belongs even to ‘newborn babes’ in grace, for even such are spoken of as forming part of ‘an holy priesthood, to offer up spiritual sacrifices’. Nor is this confined to men as was the Aaronic priesthood, for in Christ Jesus ‘there is neither male nor female’. It does not refer exclusively or even specially to persons called clergymen or ministers, but to all of you who believe in Jesus, for you are God’s clergy, that is, his inheritance, and you should all be ministers, ministering ‘according to the grace that is given to’ you.

    FOR MEDITATION: All believers are expected to make living sacrifices to God (Romans 12:1). In Hebrews 13:15–16 we learn that these ongoing sacrifices should include our praises (Psalm 69:30–31), our prayers (Revelation 5:8), our practices (Micah 6:6–8) and our presents (Philippians 4:18).

  • [Forwarded from Pepe Deluxe (Pepe Deluxe)]
    Likewise, ye husbands, dwell with them according to knowledge, giving honour unto the wife, as unto the weaker vessel, and as being heirs together of the grace of life; that your prayers be not hindered.
    1 Peter 3:7

    You take the least talented in men's division....they can hurt a woman MMA champion

    It's not right what we are doing to our women and girls

    You have perverts dressing as girls raping girls in bathrooms and school boards covering it up...(y'all are monsters)

    People raping girls on subways and nobody doing anything about it?!

    The lowest thing I know is a man hurting children and women, who are by design, not strong as men

    That MMA fighter pretending to be a girl putting girls in the hospital is pure satanic....oh He enjoys it a lot too btw

    Any group putting that fight together doesn't deserve our $$ or viewership

    You aren't a man if you hit girls

    Deep State always hurts the girls without a Daddy....cause you know why

    Fauci even did the aids test on the orphan babies

    Deep State not only targets people of color like they did with the Tuskegee experiment syphilis shots as well on people of color....

    They systematically try to separate Dad's from their families

    I know many conservatives don't think the way I do about systemic racism and how Deep State are very racists and blame it on you.

    Democrats have the KKK and say we are

    Democrats didn't want you to vote,
    Then bought your vote with welfare to get it when they couldn't stop them

    Hey!!! I'm preaching well

    Now it was racist to ID people for voting

    But if you don't show us your vaccine card, you can't eat

    Now 72% of NYC people of Color are wisely avoiding the vaccine.

    Who's the racist here?
