Prayer is God's Presence - may the streets of Beijing be filled with Your presence.
I have known a small, very small measure indeed, of the agony of prayer. In this small measure, it feels as I plead and yearn in earnest that my heart might stop and my life end - but for the strength of God in the praying.
What Life and Strength there is in God!
Oh! What breathing life of God in praying when the soul and all the stature of the man is cast entirely upon God.
God - make men to pray again! Make this poor, wretched man know the life of a single and devoted prayer to Thee: that I may know the continued gaze of the soul upon God and the out working of God's love, from my heart, to the world about me.
