#21 In the Name of Our Lord Jesus Christ

     Samuel Chadwick: Our Lord never explained what was meant by praying in His name. The meaning was plain enough to every Israelite. God had revealed Himself through His name. 

   He had made them an elect people, that they might be the interpreters, custodians, and witnesses of His name. When they dishonored it in their own land and degraded it among the Gentiles, He redeemed and restored them for the sanctification of His name. (Google image,Man praying with Bible)

Enjoying Wonderful Things

   Merlin Carothers: "No mere man has ever seen, heard, or even imagined what wonderful things God has ready for those who love the Lord" 1 Cor. 2:9 (TLB).

   When are we scheduled to enjoy these wonderful blessings that God has prepared for us? Only in heaven? No! Today, tomorrow and forever! God has given us His plan for us to receive these unusually good things. (Google image, I Love God)

#19 Scriptures I Read at Stated Seasons

Samuel Chadwick: There are scriptures that I read at stated seasons! One of my earliest attempts at real Bible study was to try to write out in order the doings and sayings of our Lord in the week of His Passion, and I go over those passages always in the Sacred Week!

   There are similar passages for Advent and other festivals of the Christian year! (Google image, Enjoy reading the Bible)

Do Not Fear

   Kelly Balarie-_There is no fear in Christ’s love. Today, I feel strongly that scripture explains all this better than I can. No matter what you face, His love is enough to save you. 
   His strength is enough to deliver you. His Word is enough to encourage you. His life is enough to compel you. His goodness is enough to believe in. Take faith, and enjoy Psalm 27. I love you all.

#18 How to Use the Word in Prayer

   Samuel Chadwick: It is best to have no book but the Bible, that scripture may be interpreted by scripture. I find it well to take the sayings of Psalmist and prophet and turn them into prayers.

   Avoid the lure of sidetracks. I have been interested to find that men known far and wide for their Biblical scholarship always use the Authorized Version in their devotions. I commend their example. Search the Scriptures. The heart is soon aglow then the Word is alight. (Google image, Read the Bible 6 reasons to read the Bible)

#17 The Praying Method in the World

   Samuel Chadwick: Paul said, "I will pray with the understanding also." The Word of God gives understanding to prayer. 

  The Bible is not an easy book to the uninitiated, and that is why so many fall back upon ordered and simple books of devotion, but it is the book of common prayer to be understood by the common people. 

   I think I can help you best by telling you of my own method.(Google image, Young man reading the Bible)
