God of My Salvation
Ill: 2nd Layer of Our Foundation: Prayer & the Knowledge of God as our Salvation
When it comes to scripture on Prayer they are a lot of great place to turn
Prayer & Entrusting ourselves to Go
James Montgomery happily described what real prayer is when he wrote,—
“Prayer is the soul’s sincere desire,
Utter’d or unexpress’d:
The motion of a hidden fire,
That trembles in the breast.
“Prayer is the burden of a sigh,
The falling of a tear;
The upward glancing of an eye,
When none but God is near.
“Prayer is the simplest form of speech
That infant lips can try;
Prayer the sublimest strains that reach
The Majesty on high.
“Prayer is the contrite sinner’s voice
Returning from his ways;
While angels in their songs rejoice,
And cry, ‘Behold he prays!’ ”
