“Keep the altar of private prayer burning.” C. H. Spurgeon
Is it quiet where you are? Your home peaceful and secure? Does your mind, body and spirit reflect the light and presence of God?
If not, then perhaps your sanctuary and private altars has not touched the throne of God. It is easy for our minds to become confused, our thoughts twisted, our passions aflame with wrong desires and emotions. Our thoughts, desires, passions must not be conformed to this world, but transformed by the renewing our of minds daily with prayer. The flame of prayer purifies our thoughts, and as it does the mind is clear, and we can hear from God.
It’s a beautiful day. Enjoy it, but don’t forget to go to the altar and pray. The light of your prayers will cast a heavenly glow for someone desperately searching for the it.
