Often our faith grows tired, languid, and relaxed, and our prayers lose their force and effectiveness.
Patiently wait for God alone, my soul! For he is the one who gives me confidence (Ps. 62:5). Every prayer of the Christian, made in faith, according to the will of God, for which God has promised, offered up in the name of Jesus Christ, and under the influence of the Spirit, whether for temporal or for spiritual blessings, is, or will be, fully answered.
God may not give us an easy journey to the Promised Land, but He will give us a safe one.
We must keep on praying and waiting upon the Lord, until the sound of a mighty rain is heard.
Christ becomes more real to the one who persists in the cultivation of His presence.
The Lord will go through with His covenant engagements.
It is extremely doubtful if a soul can really know the love of God in its richness and completeness until the skies are black and lowering.
Only remember that clouds are always moving and passing before God’s cleansing wind.
The fire did not arrest their motion; they walked in the midst of it.
Why do I run to this neighbor and that when God is so near and will hear my faintest call?
Faith, walking in the dark with God, only prays Him to clasp its hand more closely.
