The ABC's of Bible Prayer
(Glenn Coon - 208 pages)
Faith is simply trusting God.
"I found in my agony of searching, something for which I have been continually grateful. I found the ABC's of prayer."
"In Matthew 7:7 I learned of the 'A' of prayer. 'Ask and it shall be given you.' In Mark 11:24 I learned the 'B' of prayer. 'Believe.' Believe that you have received the answer! Isn't that simple? Yes, the rudiments are simple, but to do it is something else. To kneel down before God and open His book to anyone of the 3,573 promises, or clusters of promises, and place my hand on it and ask God, with the simplicity of a little child, to fulfill this promise in my behalf, and then believe He will do it, simply because He has promised, is not a complicated thing . . .
"The 'C' is the prayer of reception. And this I had to learn after having preached for many years. The 'C' is to claim the promise for which I have asked and which I have told God that I believe. I claim it by returning thanks that I have receive it. This is the secret that had eluded me for many years . . . "
