About the Author

Andrew Murray

One of four children, Andrew Murray was born in Graaff-Reinet, South Africa. It was there, after his formal education in Scotland and three years of theological study in Holland, that Andrew Murray returned as a missionary and minister. In 1873 he helped establish the Huguenot Seminary, a school where young women could be trained for educational work. Murray also served as the first president of the Young Men’s Christian Fellowship (YMCA). He authored over 240 books and was a man of great prayer. Abiding in Christ was the cornerstone to Andrew Murray’s life and ministry. He wrote, “Abide in Jesus: your life in Him will lead you to that fellowship with God in which the only true knowledge of God is to be had. His love, His power, His infinite glory will, as you abide in Jesus, be so revealed as it hath not entered into the heart of man to conceive.” He and his wife, Emma, had nine children.

The Secret of Adoration

Why are so many Christians reluctant to spend time in prayer? If, on the human level, spending time in the company of a parent is normally something quite natural and enjoyable for a child, what is it that hinders God’s children from doing the same with their heavenly Father?

One answer could be that we are too focused on our human limitations, on our own meekness and sinfulness, and not
enough on God’s greatness, holiness, love, and omnipotence. The thoughts and feelings that fill our hearts and minds influence our prayers.

If we dwell upon our own needs and desires, our own efforts, and our own faith, we shall soon find that there is no real power in our prayers. It is essential that we see prayer in the light of God: the deep interest He takes in us, the great love with which He desires to answer prayer, the omnipotence of His power, and the magnitude of His strengthening grace. As with all else, in prayer God must be first. Prayer, to be effective, needs to first be approached in the light of heaven and the infinite glory of the living God. It is when, by this marvelous grace, we have been lifted up into His fellowship and love that He bestows upon us the blessings we need. The first thing, then, must be to bow in lowly reverence before God, offering Him our adoration and worship.

We need to take time to adore God and to secure some sense of His presence. Give God time to reveal Himself to you. Then adore Him. God is in the temple: Let all who appear before Him do so in awe. Prostrate yourself before Him with deepest reverence. Own Him alone as your God and Savior, and praise His name forever.

True Worship

Worship God!
Revelations 22:9

What might be the reason that prayer is not for us a greater joy and delight? How can we bring down the power and the blessing on those for whom we pray?

The primary answer is undoubtedly that our experience of the presence of God is too limited. When we pray, we do not seek after His presence with all our hearts. We think mostly of our need, our weakness, our desire, our prayer. We forget that in every prayer God must be first and foremost. To seek Him, to find Him, to linger in His presence, is the approach that gives prayer its inspiration. How then can you acquire an intimate experience of the presence of God in your communion with Him? The answer is quite simple:

Believe with your whole heart that He offers Himself as the listener. Give God the opportunity to make Himself known to you when you approach Him in prayer. You will never discover this, however, if you do not take time to have
genuine fellowship with God. The power of prayer does not lie in the number or earnestness of the words you use, but in a living faith that God Himself accepts both you and your prayer into His loving heart.

It is the goal of this month’s readings to help you to meet with God every time you pray. Each day you will be given one or more texts, with which you can bow before God in adoration, waiting for Him to lead you into a real experience of their truth and power. Therefore, begin the day with the desire, “My soul thirsts for God, for the living God. When can I go and meet with God?” (Psalm 42:2).

I have long searched for a daily devotional that could deliver both a lesson in Scripture and an encouraging, devotional thought for prayer and reflection. There are many, many devotional resources out there, and I've found that most suffer from (in my opinion) one of two drawbacks: (1) more focus on the author's thoughts than on Scripture itself, or (2) thoughts that seem random, even forced, and don't follow any particular pattern from day to day.

Daily in His Presence stands apart from the crowd in both its arrangement and its content. Each chapter contains a month's worth of daily readings and devotionals that all relate to a specific topic...for example, prayer, worship, etc. Although each day's reading is drawn from a different part of the Bible, there's a continuity throughout the month. My only criticism is that each reading only identifies a very short passage, usually no more than a single verse. This is easily solved by simply reading the Bible chapter, or at least sub-section, surrounding the day's verse.

Each day's reading will increase your knowledge of Scripture, and bring you face-to-face with aspects of your spiritual life that can use improvement. Andrew Murray writes from a true desire for a personal relationship with Christ, and his passion to share this way of life with his readers is evident. One of the truly great ministers and writers of the 19th centry, Murray's devotional thoughts (fueled by his desire for spiritual renewal and revival in the church) are just as relevant today as 100 years ago...and perhaps more so.

I recommend this book HIGHLY!

Each year I choose a devotional book to use in my morning devotions. This year I found a treasure, "Daily In His Presence", by Andrew Murray. Each day comes with a verse from scripture and comments from Mr. Murray around a different theme each month. You will find every day to be filled with richness and depth that seldom come from a devotional book. You will want to use it year after year, and give copies to family and friends. The book is edited by Bruce Wilkinson, who made Dr. Murray's writings easier to comprehend. You will know that truly you have been "Daily In His Presence".

Andrew Murray compels us through this devotional to draw near to the heart of the Lord Jesus Christ.

Encouraging, exhorting and challenging the believer to live our lives to the fullest as our expression of joy to our Lord.

While acknowledging that only by faith through God's grace and power, waiting and relying on Him alone, shall we honor His desire for our lives on this earth.

Bruce Wilkinson edited Andrew Murray's Daily in His Presence, making it simple to use. Each month has a theme, such as: prayer, fellowship, and adoration. In a nutshell, each devotion focuses on the importance of a relationship with God.

Each daily devotion includesa short Bible verse and a page of inspiration. The writing is concise and uplifting.

This daily devotional is one to read and reread year after year. This book is appropriate for adults of all ages. It would make a great gift.

Andrew Murray had a gift of insight in spiritual things. Most importantly her can articulate these spiritual insights so that us average people can understand. Be sure to get a later edition as the language in some of the older editions can get confusing.

This is the best set of writings from a very insightful and Spirit filled mentor. I keep buying copies to give away. It's not a simple devotional. It's a collection of writings from around 100 years ago from a pastor to his parishioners who could not get into town for church more than once per month. It was his way of pastoring from a distance. Anyway, just get the book. You'll be blessed with the straight-forward and insightful guide to the Christian life.
