God's Father-Love in the School of Prayer

A good lesson in the school of prayer:
The knowledge of God's Father-love is the first and simplest, but also the last and highest lesson in the school of prayer. Prayer begins in a personal relationship with the living God as well as a personal, conscious fellowship of love with Him. In the knowledge of God's Fatherliness revealed by the Holy Spirit, the power of prayer will root and grow. The life of prayer has its joy in the infinite tenderness, care, and patience of an infinite Father who is read to hear and help.
—Andrew Murray, With Christ in the School of Prayer (Springdale: Whitaker House, 1981), 31.
