The Cost of Prayer

From Oswald Chambers’ If You Will Ask :

“Remember, what makes prayer easy is not our wits or our understanding, but the tremendous agony of God in redemption. A thing is worth just what it costs. Prayer is not what it costs us, but what it cost God to enable us to pray.”

Last night at Ladies Bible Study we talked about prayer. This quote by Oswald Chambers made me pause and consider this aspect of prayer that I have not thought of before. It cost Christ His life, to enable us to pray. If it were not for His shed blood covering us, we would not have bold access to the throne of God. What a sobering, and wonderful, thought!
