Faith and Submission

Posted by OIC on July 1, 2016

"By scriptural warrant, prayer may be divided into the petition of faith and that of submission. The prayer of faith is based on the written Word, for "faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the Word of God." It receives its answer, inevitably, the very thing for which it prays. The prayer of submission is without a definite word of promise, so to speak, but takes hold of God with a lowly and contrite spirit and asks and pleads with Him that which the soul desires."
