Prayer Is Princely Work
By Alexander Whyte
Prayer is princely work—prayer, that is, like Jacob’s prayer at the Jabbok (Gen. 32:22-20). Prayer, at its best, is the noblest, the sublimest, the most magnificent, and stupendous act that any creature of God can perform on earth or in heaven. Prayer is far too princely a life for most men. It is high and they are low and they cannot attain to it. True prayer is colossal work.
There were giants in the old days. Would you be one of this royal race? Would you stand in the lot of God’s princeliest elect at the end of your days? And would you be numbered with His Son and with His choicest saints? Then pray!
