There's a little book called, 'Prayer, The Mightiest Force in the World' by Frank Laubach which I refer to constantly. It's the best book ever written about prayer.
I quote from it a poem by Archbishop trench,
"Lord, what a change within us one short hour
Spent in Thy presence will avail to make;
What heavy burdens from our bosom take!
What parched ground refreshes as with a shower,
We kneel and all around us seems to lower;
We rise, and all, the distant and the near,
Stand forth in sunny outline, brave and clear.
We kneel, how weak! We rise, how full of power!
Why, therefore, should we do ourselves this wrong
Or others-that we are not always strong-
That we sometimes overborne with care-
That we should ever weak or heartless be
Anxious or troubled-when with us is prayer
And joy and strength and courage are with Thee!"
I've ordered some books from Amazon and I see them flashing them on this blog.
