The true believer can no more live without prayer, than without food day by day.

From Luke 6:12:  “Now during those days He [Jesus] went out to the mountain to pray, and He spent the night in prayer to God.”

George Whitefield (1714-1770) was an English-born pastor and Christian evangelist.  He spent the second half of his life in the American colonies.

God alone can give us songs in the night.

From Mark 5:35-36:  “While He was still speaking, some people came from the synagogue leader’s house to say, ‘Your daughter is dead.  Why trouble the teacher any further?’  But overhearing what they said, Jesus said to the synagogue leader, “Do not be afraid; only believe.'”

The one thing for which we are all being disciplined is to know that God is real.  As soon as God becomes real, other people become shadows.  Nothing that other saints do or say can ever perturb the one who is built on God.

From Genesis 15:5-6:  “He brought him [Abram] outside and said, ‘Look toward heaven and count the stars, if you are able to count them.’ Then He said to him, ‘So shall your descendants be.’  And he believed the Lord, and the Lord reckoned it to him as righteousness.”

Caring from Above

This poem is designed with every three verses using a modified Haiku format (with the first and third verses rhyming).  The verses alternate between God’s exhortations (the odd verses) and our responses (the even verses). 

From the words of American pastor and Christian teacher, Charles Stanley:  “We can trust God because He works all things together for His good and just purpose.”

From Ephesians 4:15-16:  “But speaking the truth in love, we must grow up in every way into Him who is the head, into Christ, from whom the whole body, joined and knit together by every ligament with which it is equipped, as each part is working properly, promotes the body’s growth in building itself up in love.”
