"I ask whether you pray, because prayer is an act in relation to which there is great encouragement. There is everything on God's part to make prayer easy, if men will only attempt it." - Ryle, A Call to Prayer
We just noted how difficult it is to become a man given to prayer. So what does Ryle mean here? It is not that prayer is actually easy when it comes to ourselves. His point is that through Christ, we have been granted easy access to boldly approach the throne of grace. We have no theological or super-spiritual hurdles to jump over in order to come into the presence of our Father. We simply have to come in the name of Jesus (dressed in His righteousness).
