Loving Our Neighbor on Our Knees
Moreover, as for me, God forbid that I should sin against the Lord, in ceasing to pray for you.
I SAMUEL 12:23
MORE things are wrought by prayer
Than this world dreams of. Wherefore, let thy voice
Rise like a fountain for me night and day.
For what are men better than sheep or goats
That nourish a blind life within the brain,
Made For a Purpose I am the Lord thy God which teacheth thee to profit, which leadeth thee by the way that thou shouldest go.
JUST as God leads me I would go;
I would not ask to choose my way;
Content with what He will bestow,
Assured He will not let me stray.
So as He leads, my path I make,
And step by step I gladly take,
A child in Hi ...read

And bear thee through the evil days;
Who trusts in God's unchanging love,
Builds on the rock that nought can move. ...read

Marching Together Are they not all ministering spirits, sent forth to minister for them who shall be heirs of salvation?
NEAR you in sympathy the angels stand,
Their unseen hosts encompass you around;
Strong and unconquerable the glorious band,
And loud their songs and hymns of victory sound.
And near you, though invisible, are those,
Meeting God Daily Therefore wait ye upon me, saith the Lord.
That you might be filled with all the fulness of God.
What is our work when God a blessing would impart?
To bring the empty vessel of a needy heart.
