Three Things to Support You in Prayer

“You must be persuaded that God will hear you according to your will or need, when you ask things agreeable to his will, and fit for you to receive in your station, and with a due subordination to his glory and the interest of his kingdom; upon other terms you should not ask anything of God.  To support you, that you shall have what you ask, there are three things–(1.) God’s nature; (2.) Christ’s merits; (3.) The promises of the gospel.”  –Thomas Manton “Works” Vol. 21, p. 199

About Maureen Stohlmeyer

Grateful to have been married to my wonderful husband Michael for nearly 35 years who is now with the Lord, I would like to share from writers from the past who have strengthened our faith and walk with Jesus Christ our Savior and Redeemer. His walk with God was deeply enriched by the writings of authors from the past and I dedicate this blog to him and to them.
