Keep Praying...For Diane (and all the rest of us too)

All I say is keep praying…
These were her words to us as we reminded her that we are thinking of her as she heads to yet another chemo treatment… and the journey is hard and long and riddled with discouragement.
Can you pray too?
(her hubby is Steve)

Keep praying though we cannot see
Its full harvest from bended knee
Or understand the thought of He
Who hears each humble-hearted plea

Keep praying; ours is not to know
But trust the Love whereby we go
And lay before his grace our needs
Then faithful Father intercedes

Keep praying, oh, and do not quit
Hope, healing, help, depends on it
We, earthy vessels can rely
On He who wrestles with our ‘why

Keep praying; for since Adam's clan
Prayer spans the gulf twixt God and man
Where mustard-seed-sized faith can move
Mountains, according to God’s love

Keep praying; it is not in vain
The will of He who hears each call
And replies with His Best of All

Keep praying that our prayers would raise
Another foot-soldier who prays
In a world lacking faith for prayer

Not for lack of time,
but for lack of faith
we do not pray

Don't know what to utter?
Don't know what to say?
Don't worry or stutter
just be still
...and pray 

But when you pray, go into your inner room, shut your door, and pray to your Father, who is unseen. And your Father, who sees what is done in secret, will reward you. 


The promises of God are for the children of God.
The promise of Salvation is to all who call on Him and believe. 
(from the above message)

...below, another of my favorite prayer-hymns. The words are awesome!
