Prayer: Man's Noblest Exercise

I ought to pray before seeing anyone. Often when I sleep long or meet with others early. It is eleven or twelve o'clock before I begin secret prayer. This is a wretched system. It is unscriptural. Christ arose before day and went into a solitary place. David says: “Early will I seek thee, thou shalt early hear my voice”! Without prayer, the conscience feels guilty, the soul unfed and the lamp not trimmed. Then when in secret prayer the soul is often out of tune. I feel it is far better to begin with God, to see His face first, to get my soul near Him before it is near another. - Robert Murray McChehne.
