from "Jacob – Wrestling" by Alexander Whyte

Prayer, my brethren, is princely work–prayer, that is, like Jacob’s prayer at the Jabbok. Prayer, at its best, is the noblest, the sublimest, the most magnificent, and stupendous act that any creature of God can perform on earth or in heaven. Prayer is far too princely a life for most men It is high, and they are low, and they cannot attain to it. True prayer is colossal work.

–Alexander Whyte
Lord, Teach us to Pray, p. 51
