A Treatise on Prayer by Edward Bickersteth
The genesis of this book is very simple. Having occasion to prepare a special address on “Prayer,” it occurred to me to collate and compare all the words spoken by our Lord Himself upon the great theme., as it had often been found that His teachings upon any given subject, when so combined, constitute a consistent and harmonious whole — a body of doctrine, singularly comprehensive, and symmetrically complete.
In order to present His teachings, as to Prayer, most fully and satisfactorally, three things seemed essential: First, to gather them all together, for the sake of completeness; secondly, to classify them under appropriate divisions, for the sake of analysis and synthesis; and, thirdly, to arrange them as far as possible in chronological order, for the sake of discovering and disclosing any progress of doctrine which they might exhibit.
The result of these studies has proved so surprising and so satisfactory, that it is given to all devout students of the Scriptures, in the confidence that others will find here some such help, instruction, and comfort, as the writer has found. Perhaps even the imperfection of the work, here embodied, may incite other pupils of the Great Master to a more successful search into the wonderful words of Him who spake as never man spake.
These remarks serve to show that our Lord’s general office as mediator necessarily includes the particular offices of prophet, priest, and king. Sin had separated between us and God; and sin could only be expiated by sacrifice — hence the necessity of his priesthood. We are alienated from the life of God, by the ignorance that is in us, because of the blindness of our hearts — hence the necessity of his prophetical office. We are under bondage to sin, Satan, and the present evil world, and not only captives, but also willing captives — and hence the necessity of his kingly office. Thus his official character is complete, as it is commensurate to the utmost extent of our miseries and wants.
A shorthand reporter, without the knowledge of Dr. Maclaren, took down, many of his pulpit prayers. Dr. Maclaren, but with extreme reluctance, yielded to the suggestion that they should be published. Many ministers will find them a great aid in their public devotions, and that they will guide others in the spiritual life.
The late preacher W. A. Criswell used to preach a series of sermons called the Scarlet Thread through the Bible. Cut the Bible open at any verse, and it will bleed Christ. Christ IS the Word of God! Studying a book written by an infinitely wise God having an infinite number of personal applications, the study of the trail of blood could be taken through a host of different trails. To pursue just one trail is a monumental task. The verses examined in this booklet will only be representative because every book of the Bible contains Christ, often in a multitude of ways.
Some might say, ‘I know that Christ is revealed in the Scriptures. What is the purpose of this booklet?’ Jesus Christ took time to expound the Scriptures concerning Himself. On the road to Emmaus we see Christ preaching and teaching. “And beginning at Moses and all the prophets, he expounded unto them in all the scriptures the things concerning himself.” Jesus began in Genesis and taught through the Old Testament the Scriptures concerning Himself. May the reader say with the men whom Jesus taught that day, “And they said one to another, Did not our heart burn within us, while he talked with us by the way, and while he opened to us the scriptures?” May the reader want to experience heart burn like those men did that day.
