Students of Prayer presentation (11/26/16) from The Necessity of Prayer by E.M. Bounds, Chapter 3

  • “When trust is perfect and without doubt, prayer is simply the outstretched hand, ready to receive.”
  • “Trust perfected, is prayer perfected. Trust looks to receive the thing asked for -- and gets it.”
  • “Trust is not a belief that God can bless, that He will bless, but that He does bless, here and now.”
    • “Trust always operates in the present tense. Hope looks toward the future. Trust looks to the present.”
  • “Hope expects. Trust possesses. Trust receives what prayer acquires."
