FIVE LESSONS ON THE FELLOWSHIP OF PRAYER
4. In the Quiet Place
BY T. M. ANDERSON
The duties of the coming day demanded much from the savior. His physical strength was constantly renewed through His
ceaseless prayers. Before the dawn of the busy day our Lord went out and
departed into a solitary place and there prayed.
The example of our Lord enables us to perceive the value of unburdening our
hearts in the quiet hours of the morning. It is difficult to pray when the mind is
filled with the confusion and rush of the day. We must shut the door of our mind
and exclude the cares and burdens of the day in order to prevail with God in the
secret place of prayer.
One will be astonished at the results obtained in the quiet place of prayer. I have
seen the Lord work wonders in answer to prayer offered before Him in the early
hours of the morning. I have known Him to heal people in homes and hospitals
hundreds of miles from the place where I was praying.
