Restorative Prayer ~ Spurgeon

Prayer pulls the rope below and the great bell rings above in the ears of God.

On the first of May in the olden times, according to annual custom, many inhabitants of London went into the fields to bathe their faces with the early dew upon the grass under the idea that it would render them beautiful.

Various commentators had called this action superstitious.

It may have been so, but this we do know, that to bathe one's face every morning in the dew of heaven by prayer and fellowship with the Lord, is the sure way to obtain true beauty of life and and character both now and forever.

The Last Word:

O Lord, be gracious to us; we long for you. Be our strength, our salvation in time of distress. (Isaiah 33:2)
