Andrew Murray (1828-1917)
Prayer must often be ‘heaped up’ until God sees that its measure is full. Then the answer comes. Just as each of ten thousand seeds is a part of the final harvest. Frequently repeated, persevering prayer is necessary to acquire a desired blessing…Real faith can never be disappointed. It knows that to exercise its power, it must be gathered up, just like water, until the stream can come down in full force.
For through the Spirit, by faith, we wait for the hope of righteousness . . . faith working through love. Galatians 5: 5, 6
