On Intercessory Prayer by Rev. Andrew Murray

​”Nothing will so test and stimulate the Christian life as the honest attempt to be an intercessor. It is difficult to conceive how much we ourselves and the Church will be the gainers, if with our whole heart we accept the post of honour God is offering us. With regard to the school of intercession, I am confident that the result of the first month’s course will be to awake the feeling of how little we know how to intercede. And a second and a third month may only deepen the sense of ignorance and unfitness. This will be an unspeakable blessing. The confession, “We know not how to pray as we ought,” is the introduction to the experience, “The Spirit maketh intercession for us”—our sense of ignorance will lead us to depend upon the Spirit praying in us, to feel the need of living in the Spirit.”

From “THE MINISTRY OF INTERCESSION A PLEA FOR MORE PRAYER”

BY THE  REV. ANDREW MURRAY WELLINGTON, S. AFRICA. 1898
