The Lord's Garden
Soul Snack 131/13 ... The Lord's Garden
Prayer is the fodder of a healthy spirit and the chainsaw that cuts down the forests of sin.
Prayer is an axe to the logs in a believer's eye and a divine mirror to the emotions.
Prayer is a cure to the spirit, peace to the mind and a guide to the hands.
Prayer is the assize of the soul where we must unsparingly judge whatever is evil in our lives and shelter in our hearts no rival to God - 'let not one of them escape'. (A.W.Pink)
Woe-betide he whose prayer life is shallow and his knees unwrinkled; long will his sin live and long will his vine remain barren.
The heart of prayerful repentance is a garden for the Lord to sow in, till and water; such a heart is a vineyard for a large harvest - season after season.
Prayer is sowing seeds in heaven for bearing fruit on earth.
Pray continually (1 Thess 5:17)
