Spirit of Prophecy

 

Both in public and in private worship
it is our privilege to bow on our knees
before God when we offer our petitions to
Him. Jesus, our example, “kneeled down,
and prayed.” Luke 22:41….Paul declared,
“I bow my knees unto the Father of our
Lord Jesus Christ.” Ephesians 3:14.
True reverence for God is inspired by a
sense of His infinite greatness and a
realization of His presence. With this sense
of the Unseen, every heart should be
deeply impressed. The hour and place of

prayer are sacred because God is there.
And as reverence is manifested in attitude
and demeanor, the feeling that inspires
it will be deepened. “Holy and reverend is
His name,” the psalmist declares, Psalm
111:9. Angels, when they speak that name,
veil their faces. With what reverence, then,
should we, who are fallen and sinful, take
it upon our lips!
(Prophets and Kings,
Chapter 2, pages 48, 49)


…Paul says, “I bow my knees unto the
Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, of whom the
whole family in heaven and earth is named,
that He would grant you, according to the
riches of His glory, to be strengthened
with might by His Spirit in the inner man;
that Christ may dwell in your hearts by
faith; that ye, being rooted and grounded
in love, may be able to comprehend with
all saints what is the breadth, and length,
and depth, and height; and to know the
love of Christ, which passeth knowledge,
that ye might be filled with all the
fullness of God.” Ephesians 3:14-19.
…This is the knowledge which God is
inviting us to receive, and beside which
all else's is vanity and nothingness.
(The Ministry of Healing, page 426)
