Psalm 59:16 But I will sing of your strength; I will sing aloud of your steadfast love in the morning. For you have been to me a fortress and a refuge in the day of my distress.
“When I was young I began a life of prayer, God had awaken my soul. I didn’t pray because I wanted certain things from God but I wanted to be with God. I wanted to be near God. I was homesick for Jesus. I was longing for fellowship with Jesus. The world didn’t satisfy me, it tried to tear me to pieces. But I found a foundation, a well of living water waiting to satisfy my thirst.
I didn’t get it in my church, that’s the strange thing. My church was very dry and very dead. I didn’t get it there. I got it from Jesus Christ. And to this day I’m at the fountain. To this day I wouldn’t dare to nor would I care to live any other way but to live at the fountain. And that’s why I recommend a life of prayer.
Not the kind of prayer to get power or because it’s customary or anything like that. Real prayer is a lovership, a Holy Ghost love affair, with God who loves us, Oh how He loves us.” Hans R. Waldvogel
Oh Lord when I arise may the first thing that I see,
be the four and twenty elders as they praise and worship Thee
And let my heart join right in, and let my voice begin to race,
singing worthy, worthy is the Lamb as I melt all cares in your grace.
“Prayer is not monologue, but dialogue. Gods voice in response to mine is its most essential part.” Andrew Murray
