Daily Prayer Devotional

“So Moses went out from Pharaoh, and entreated the Lord.” Exodus 8:30

“So Moses cried out to the Lord.” Exodus 17:4

“And Moses returned to the Lord.” Exodus 32:31

“As My glorious presence passes by, I will hide you in the crevice of the rock and cover you with My hand until I have passed by.” Exodus 33:2

The man who led his people to salvation and through whom they were delivered at the sea and in the wilderness was a praying man. He lived and walked and talked with God as a friend. In that march (more celebrated than any other in history) as he led an undisciplined horde through unparalleled difficulties to splendid success, at every turn he called upon God. Aside from our Lord’s intercessory prayer for His disciples, the grandest instance of that kind of petition ever made came from the heart and lips of this man Moses. Every miracle of his is born in prayer. He is clearly the greatest genius of his time, and yet in nothing more remarkable than in what, if one may reverently say it, may be called the genius for prayer.

- D. W. Faunce

How the world needs men today who shall be remarkable for their genius for prayer.
