The Powerful Appropriation of Power

The Powerful Appropriation of Power


Prayer brings with it, as food does, a new sense of power and health… The life of every organism is but the constant victory of a higher energy, constantly fed, over lower and more elementary forces. Prayer is the assimilation of a holy God’s moral strength. We must work for this living. To feed the soul we must toil in prayer… Prayer is the powerful appropriation of power, of divine power. It is therefore creative.

– P. T.  Forsyth, Soul of Prayer
