The Practice of Christ's Presence (1932)

Published in 1932, this book by W.Y. Fullerton is actually compiled from his talks at the Keswick Convention in England. It is an amazing inspiration that enables one to realize what the practicality of Christ's presence really means in our lives. We can learn how to become more aware of the reality of His minute-by-minute presence beside us.

Chapter titles:
1. The Promise
~accepting the fact that He promised to be with us
2. The Experience
~realizing His presence in our daily lives
3. The Expression
~a beautiful walk through the Lord's Prayer (our model prayer)
4. The Practice
~Learning to acknowledge, realize, and practice His presence through the seven "watches" of the day:

We think of, thank God for, and pray to the Holy Spirit.

We commit the day to the Lord.

We bring the world to His feet (praying for the world and world missions).

We glory in the cross and all that it has done and continues to do for us.

We seek special renewal of personal fellowship.

We commit the night with all its possibilities into His hand.

We ardently long for His glorious appearing.

And also at 3am (for those awakened at this hour, it is not an accident): We sing to Him in the night and pray for sleeping saints.

Thou art the Life within me,
O Jesus, King of kings;

Thou art Thyself the answer

To all my questionings.

The book can be purchased here.

  1. This sounds like a great book, Dayna!

    Thank you for your insight on the Hebrews passage. I it wonderful how the Lord shows us things that seem hidden. I think He wants us to actually think about what we read.
