長時間_Long Hours

經文: 「我專心祈禱。」(詩一○九4)



        有人說,一個不喜愛單獨的人,絕不能在文學上或者科學上有所成功。屬靈的事情也是這樣,一個不常花長時間與上帝單獨親近的人,絕不能在屬靈的事情上得到多大的長進--譯自靜默的時候(The Still Hour)


Long Hours
Scripture: "I will give myself unto prayer" (Ps. 109:4).
 We are often in a religious hurry in our devotions. How much time do we spend in them daily? Can it not be easily reckoned in minutes? Who ever knew an eminently holy man who did not spend much of his time in prayer? Did ever a man exhibit much of the spirit of prayer, who did not devote much time in his closet? 

        Whitefield says, "Whole days and weeks have I spent prostrate on the ground, in silent or vocal prayer." "Fall upon your knees and grow there," is the language of another, who knew whereof he affirmed. 

        It has been said that no great work in literature or science was ever wrought by a man who did not love solitude. We may lay it down as an elemental principle of religion, that no large growth in holiness was ever gained by one who did not take time to be often, and long, alone with God. --The Still Hour
