Mastery over self


“The energy for work, the mastery over self, the deliverance from fear, all spiritual results and graces, are much advanced by prayer. The difference between the strength, the experience, the holiness of Christians is found in the contrast in their praying.” EM Bounds

The Blackabys lay out the reasons that leaders (or anyone) should pray. This includes my translation:

1) Nothing eternal happens without prayer  2) Prayer brings the Spirit’s filling         3)Prayer brings God’s wisdom  4) Prayer accesses God’s power  5) Prayer relieves stress  6) Prayer reveals God’s agenda
