Fear’s Face

I have looked in the face of fear 

many times.

I look at fear’s face

each day.

I have the freewill on how 

to gaze into

fear’s eyes.

Will I choose to runaway to 

another place? 

Hoping not to glimpse 

fear’s scowl!

Might I choose to shrink, back away,

 then vanish?

Desiring an escape of

fear’s leer!

Could I be a silhouette

inside myself?

Cowardly snaking from

 fear’s thunder! 

I have looked in the face of fear 

many times.

I look at fear’s face

each day.

I have the freewill on how 

to gaze into

fear’s eyes.

I choose to fall on my knees

to pray.

As the rising Son melts away

fear’s foundation.

I pick-up my cross and follow the Son

with the Spirit’s 

mighty embrace!

Watching the crumbling of

fear’s stronghold!

I cry out Mighty Mighty is He 

the Lamb of God 

the Lion of Judea 

Who Was and Who Is and

Who Is Forever More! 

Yeshua Messiah!

Humble and meek I choose 

to rejoice as Abba Father whisks away

fear’s dust.

Then replacing stone upon stone building towers

called Faith.

I look at Yeshua’s face

each day.

I have the freewill on how 

to gaze into

Yeshua’s eyes.

I choose to pray at His feet 

where I find

Towers called Faith.

AMEN.

Feet that Wander!

Many years ago I first prayed,

Abba hold me close for

I have feet that tend to wander;

Today I pray Abba hold me close 

for there is no other place

 I would rather be!

Abba my feet still tend

to want to wander, 

Yet with Your help my feet

 I have freely restrained,

to wandering feet searching,

for lost wandering lambs

to bring to Your Home!

AMEN. 

Quotes on Prayer! XII

1 Thessalonians 5:16-18; Rejoice always, pray without ceasing, in everything give thanks; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you.

The most eloquent prayer is the prayer through hands that heal and bless. The highest form of worship is the worship of unselfish Christian service. The greatest form of praise is the sound of consecrated feet seeking out the lost and helpless.

Billy Graham

Do not pray for easy lives. Pray to be stronger men. Do not pray for tasks equal to your powers. Pray for powers equal to your tasks. Then the doing of your work shall be no miracle, but shall be the miracle.

Phillips Brooks

Certain thoughts are prayers. There are moments when, whatever be the attitude of the body, the soul is on its knees.

Victor Hugo

Good Shepherd and Guardian of our souls, we adore You. We adore You in Spirit and in Truth. Let us not lose heart, except to make more room for You in our hearts. Amen.

St. Francis of Assisi

Prayer is striking the winning blow. Service is gathering up the results.

S. D. Gordon

Prayer should never be an excuse for inaction. Nehemiah prayed, but he also set guards for protection. He used common sense. As a result, what had not been done in a hundred years’ time was finished in fifty-two days.

Corrie ten Boom

Nothing is so costly, so exorbitant, so extortionate, as that which is bought by prayer. While, on the other hand, nothing is so truly and everlastingly enriching as that which is gotten and held by prayer, and by prayer alone.

Alexander Whyte

The answer to a prayer request may indeed be long-delayed, but there is no delay at all in an answer to the prayer itself. When we cry out there is immediately an answer speedily God rushes to help. The answer may be the squeeze of the Father’s hand on ours, the quiet comfort of the Father’s voice, the reassurance of the Father’s presence even though the stresses and pressures are still evident.

Emilie Barnes 

The end we ought to propose to ourselves is to become, in this life, the most perfect worshipers of God we can possibly be, as we hope to be through all eternity.

Brother Lawrence, a sixteenth-century monk

Somebody once said God feeds the sparrow, but God never throws the food in the nest. Christ like men, who are wise never make prayer a substitute for work, nor work an excuse not to pray.

Quotes on Prayer! XI

Luke 18: 1; Then He spoke a parable to them, that men always ought to pray and not lose heart.

Humanity is never so beautiful as when praying for forgiveness or else forgiving another.

Jean Paul Richter

I can no longer condemn or hate a brother for whom I pray, no matter how much trouble he causes me.

Dietrich Bonboeffer 

When I get depressed about my present failures, I ask God to remind me of my true identity: one who will be made perfect and has already been forgiven. 

Philip Yancey

I sit beside my lonely fire and pray for wisdom: for calmness to remember or courage to forget.

Charles Hamilton Aide’

Forgiving others has to become a way of life. Something we do on a day-by-day basis. Because we are prone to blindness when it comes to our unforgiving attitudes, we can’t always see it when we have them. But God will show us the truth if we just ask Him to. The problem is, too often we don’t ask.

Stormie Omartian

Dear Lord and Father of mankind, Forgive our foolish ways! Reclothe us in our rightful mind, In purer lives thy service find, In deeper reverence, praise.

John Greenleaf Whittier

We the believers in our nation, must pray that God will wake His people out of numbness, spiritual apathy, and sleep  in order to understand their role in leading people on the path of reconciliation. 

Jack Hayford

Our real work is prayer. What good is a could iron of our frantic little efforts unless first we heat it in the furnace of our prayer? Only heat will diffuse heat. 

Mother Maribel

Mercy is getting down on your hands and knees and doing what you can do to restore dignity to someone whose life has been broken by sin ( whether his own or that of someone else).

Sinclair Ferguson

A prayer to be said when the world has gotten you down and you feel rotten, and you’re too doggone tired to pray, and you’re in a big hurry, and besides, you’re mad at everybody: HELP. 

Charles Swindoll 

Life’s Hallways

In life’s hallway,

Pass a door of bondage chains and sin,

to an open door awaits,

Yoke is lighten burdens removed,

for a door has closed behind me, 

in this humble hall I walk, 

as time passes,

with praise and worship on my lips, 

as my Abba leads. 

Pass a door of self-service, 

for an open door awaits,

Into the hall of preparation,

a door has closed behind me,

in this humble hall I walk,

as time passes,

 with praise and worship upon my lips,

as my Abba leads.

Pass a door of covetousness and strife,

to an open door awaits,

Trials to be counted for joy,

for a door has closed behind me,

in this humble hall I walk,

as time passes,

with praise and worship on my lips,

as my Abba leads.

Pass a door of riches’ comfort,

to an open door awaits,

Persecution qualifies partakers,

for a door has closed behind me, 

in this humble hall I walk,

as time passes,

with praise and worship upon my lips,

as my Abba leads.

Pass a door of Hell’s Eternal Death,

to an open door awaits,

Heaven’s Forever Peace,

for a door has closed behind me, 

on His golden streets I dance,

as time forever passes,

with praise and worship on my lips,

As Abba Father Leads.

Quotes on Prayer! X

NKJ Mark 10:51; So Jesus answered and said to him, “What do you want Me to do for you”

The Bible is the key to finding God’s Will when we pray, providing balance and meaning. Most of all, using the Word of God in prayer is about as close as we can get to the Living Word, the Lord Jesus. If we’re going to bring our needs before His throne, praying in His Name . . . it makes sense to speak in His language. It’s something I’ve learned from my friend, Bunny . . . it’s something I’ve learned from the Lord! 

Joni Eareckson Tada 

When we approach God, our Father, we are drawing close to Him who completely understands us.

Phillip Keller

Because there is a devil. he is cunning; he is mighty; he never rests; he is continually plotting the down fall of the children of God. If the child of God relaxes in prayer, the devil will succeed in ensnaring him.

R. A. Torrey

The first duty of love is to listen.

Paul Tillieb 

God answers sharp and sudden on some prayers, and thrusts the thing we have prayed for in our face, A gauntlet with a gift in ’t. 

Elizabeth Barrett Browning

Would to God you could forget everything else, and cry out, O wretched man that I am! Who shall deliver me from the body of this death? . . . Because it is when a man is brought to this confession that deliverance is at hand.

Andrew Murray 

God throws our sins into the depths of the sea. I like to think that He puts a “No Fishing Allowed” sign there. And this is necessary because the devil loves to fish up forgiven sin; he accuses us day and night.

Corrie Ten Boom

Our prayer and God’s mercy are like two buckets in a well; while the one ascends the other descends.

Mark Hopkins

There is nothing that makes us love a man so much as praying for him.

William Law

Only one petition in the Lord’s Prayer has any condition attached to it: it is the petition for forgiveness. 

William Temple
