The Way of Familiarity and Grace

Prayer008Hugh Binning, Works, p. 87:

It is true, all is already determined with him, and he is incapable of any change, or “shadow of turning.” Nothing then wants, but he is in one mind about it, and thy prayer cannot turn him. Yet a godly soul will pray with more confidence, because it knows that, as he hath determined upon all its wants and receipts, so he hath appointed this to be the very way of obtaining what it wants. This is the way of familiarity and grace he takes with his own to make them call; and he performs his purpose in answer to their cry.
