Watching And Praying
By R. A. Torrey
“Watch ye therefore, and pray always, that ye may be accounted worthy to escape all these things that shall come to pass, and to stand before the Son of man” (Luke 21:36).
We live in an atmosphere that has a constant tendency to unfit us for Christ’s Coming. The world tends to draw us down by its gratifications, and by its cares. There is only one way by which we can rise triumphant above these things – by constant watching unto prayer, that is, by sleeplessness unto prayer.
The man who spends little time in prayer, who is not steadfast and constant in prayer, will not be ready for the Lord when He comes. But we may be ready! How? By watching and praying always, as the Lord has said.
