How I love these simple words from Charles Spurgeon. (Click to tweet!)
“Short prayers are long enough.”
Spurgeon writes, “There were but three words in the petition that Peter gasped out, but they were sufficient for this purpose. Not length but strength is desirable. A sense of need is a mighty teacher of brevity. (Click to tweet!) If our prayers had less of the tail feathers of pride and more wing, they would be all the better. Verbiage is to devotion as chaff to the wheat. Precious things lie in small compass, and all that is real prayer in many a long address might have been uttered in a petition as short as that of Peter.”
But seeing the wind, he became frightened, and beginning to sink, he cried out, “Lord, save me!” Matthew 14:30
Lord, save me.
GRACE, my friends.
After a weary last week, I pray for GRACE.
