Prayer Is The Soul’s Sincere Desire


“Men ought always to pray, and not to faint.”
[Luke 18:1]


Prayer is the soul’s sincere desire,
     uttered or unexpressed,
the motion of the 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 pray;
prayer, the sublimest strains that reach
     the Majesty on high.


Prayer is the Christian’s vital breath,
     the Christian’s native air;
his watchword at the gates of death:
     He enters heav’n with prayer.


O thou by whom we come to God,
     the Life, the Truth, the Way!
The path of prayer thyself has trod:
     Lord, teach us how to pray!


          – James Montgomery, 1771-1854

Christ Died For The Ungodly

by Horatius Bonar

The divine testimony concerning man is, that he is a sinner. God bears witness against him, not for him; and testifies that "there is none righteous, no, not one"; that there is "none that doeth good"; none "that understandeth"; none that even seeks after God, and, still more, none that loves Him (Psa. 14:1-3; Rom. 3:10-12). God speaks of man kindly, but severely; as one yearning over a lost child, yet as one who will make no terms with sin, and will "by no means clear the guilty." <continued>
