Let us sing God’s praises in anticipation of things to come.
If we, as the church, do not get back to spiritual vision, glimpses of heaven, and an awareness of a greater glory and life, we will lose our faith. Our altar will become nothing but cold, empty stone, never blessed with a visit from heaven.
I know, O Lord, that man’s life is not his own; it is not for man to direct his steps. (Jeremiah 10:23)
Lead me in a straight path. (Psalm 27:11)
What will prayer do for you? My answer is this: Everything that God can do for you. “Ask for whatever you want me to give you” (2 Chron. 1:7).
So each time you intercede through prayer, first be quiet and worship God in His glory. Think of what he can do, how he delights in Christ his son, and of your place in him—then expect great things.
Our prayers are God’s opportunities.
I have learned to love the darkness of sorrow, for it is there I see the brightness of God’s face.
