Yes, I do. I collect prayers. Old ones. More recent ones. Prayers are personal. Prayers are meaningful words. Prayers speak to my heart as they are one’s communication with our God. I am not sure how long ago I read this one but this week it came back to mind.
O Great Father we are in great need;
Now therefore we implore, we implore you
Through your Word, by which you have
Filled us with [those things] we need;
Now it may please you Father for it befits you
To consider us with your help,
So that we might not fail and lest your name
Might be blackened in us
And through your name, deign to help us.
(Hildegard of Bingen)
“So let’s not get tired of doing what is good. At just the right time we will reap a harvest of blessing if we don’t give up.” (Galatians 6:9, NLT).
May we pray because ….
- we don’t give up
- we don’t get tired
- we don’t lose hope
- we don’t let go
May we pray because …..
- He will fill us
- It pleases Him
- He will help us
- It brings honor and glory to His Name
