Victory Obtained

By Andrew Murray

    The inner chamber is the place where the decisive victory is obtained.  The enemy uses all his power to lead the Christian, and above all the minister, to neglect prayer.  He knows that however admirable the sermon may be, however attractive the service, however faithful the pastoral visitation, none of these things can damage him or his kingdom, if prayer is neglected.  In the church, on the mission field, with the minister and his congregation, everything depends on the faithful exercise of the power of prayer.

    God’s child can conquer everything by prayer.  Is it any wonder that Satan does his utmost to snatch that weapon from the Christian, or to hinder him in the use of it?  Happy is the prayer hero who, through all, takes care to hold fast and use his weapon.  Like our Lord in Gethsemane, the more violently the enemy attacked, the more earnestly He prayed, and He ceased not until He had obtained the victory!
