Scripture Focus…

And He came out and went, as was His habit, to the Mount of Olives, and the disciples also followed Him.  (40) And when He came to the place, He said to them, Pray that you may not [at all] enter into temptation. (41)  And He withdrew from them about a stone’s throw and knelt down and prayed
(Luke 22:39-41 AMPC)


Leonard Ravenhill: The Secret of a Powerful Prayer Life

There’s nothing more transfiguring than prayer. People often ask, “Why do you insist on prayer so much?” The answer is very simple—because Jesus did. You could change the title of the Gospel according to St. Luke to the Gospel of Prayer. It’s the prayer life of Jesus. The other evangelists say that Jesus was in the Jordan and the Spirit descended on Him as a dove—Luke says it was while He was praying that the Spirit descended on Him. The other evangelists say that Jesus chose 12 disciples—Luke says it was after He spent a night in prayer that He chose 12 disciples. The other evangelists say that Jesus died on a cross—Luke says that even when He was dying Jesus was praying for those who persecuted Him. The other evangelists say Jesus went on a mount and He was transfigured—Luke says it was while He was praying that He was transfigured. There’s nothing more transfiguring than prayer.

The Scriptures say that the disciples went to bed, but Jesus went to pray—as was His custom. It was His custom to pray. Now Jesus was the Son of God—He was definitely anointed for His ministry. If Jesus needed all that time in prayer, don’t you and I need time in prayer? If Jesus needed it in every crisis, don’t you and I need it in every crisis?

The story goes that a group of tourists visiting a picturesque village saw an old man sitting by a fence. In a rather patronizing way, one of the visitors asked, “Were any great men born in this village?” Without looking up the old man replied, “No, only babies.” The greatest men were once babies. The greatest saints were once toddlers in the things of the Spirit.

C.H. Spurgeon was converted at the age of 16 and began preaching in London at the age of 19. When he was 27, they built him a tabernacle seating 6,000, which he packed twice on Sundays—that’s 12,000—and once on Thursday nights. How? He waited on God. He got alone with God. He studied…and he prayed.

“Get Up and Pray!”

One day I was at a conference with Dr. V. Raymond Edman of Wheaton College, one of the greatest Christian educators in this country. He told us of an experience he had while he was in Ecuador as a missionary. He hadn’t been there long before he was sick and dying. He was so near death that they had already dug his grave. He had great beads of sweat on his brow and there was a death rattle in his throat. But suddenly he sat straight up in bed and said to his wife, “Bring me my clothes!” Nobody knew what had happened.

Many years later he was retelling the story in Boston. Afterward, a little old lady with a small, dog-eared, beaten-up book, approached him and asked, “What day did you say you were dying? What time was it in Ecuador? What time would it be in Boston?” When he answered her, her wrinkled face lit up. Pointing to her book, she said. “There it is, you see? At 2 a.m. God said to get up and pray—the devil’s trying to kill Raymond Edman in Ecuador.” And she’d gotten up and prayed.

Duncan Campbell told the story of hearing a farmer in his field who was praying. He was praying about Greece. Afterward, he asked him why he was praying. The man said, “I don’t know. I had a burden in the spirit and God said, ‘You pray; there’s someone in Greece that is in a bad situation.’ I prayed until I got a release.” Two or three years later the farmer was in a meeting listening to a missionary. The man described a time when he was working in Greece. He had been in serious trouble. The time? Two or three years ago. The men compared notes and discovered that it was the very same day that God had burdened a farmer, on a little island off the coast of Scotland, to pray for a man in Greece whose name he didn’t even know.

It may seem the Lord gives you strange things. I don’t care. If the Lord tells you something, carry on with what the Lord tells you.
