Christ's Work for Us the Secret of Successful Prayer
John 15:7
If you abide in me, and my words abide in you, you shall ask what you will, and it shall be done to you.

All the promises in the Bible are so many bills of exchange drawn by God the Father in heaven upon His Son Jesus Christ, and payable to every pious bearer, — to everyone that comes to the mercy seat, and offers the promise or bill for acceptance, and pleads in the way of obedient faith and prayer. Jesus, the High Treasurer of heaven, knows every letter of His Father's handwriting, and can never be imposed upon by any forged note. He will ever honour His Father's bills: He accepts them all. It is for His Father's honour that His bills never fail of acceptance and payment.

(J. Beaumont, M. D.)
