Each New Day...Pray!!



So maybe you don't have time for this whole video below?
Even the first four or esp. the last four minutes are Wonder-Power-full
and will likely pique your desire to listen to the rest😊

True Prayer, True Power-Charles Spurgeon


We must believe prayer to be what it is
or else it is not what it should be~
Charles Spurgeon


Each new day is like a wagon laden with want, wish and need 
Trundling from the arc of heaven to the bark of word and deed 

Each new day wayfarers waken to a Hand outstretched to pour 
His new mercy not yet taken to we, pounding on Want’s Door 

Each new day demands Full Armour where distraction’s lure is tossed 
Where like modern day Gomorrah and Sodom, virtue seems lost 

Each new day is weighed with reason to bow before Holiness 
Lord, let not vain repetition mock you with rote emptiness 

Each new day groans with important, earnest opportunity 
More of faith and more of love and more of true humility 

Each new day our faith has access to more than compulsion’s curse 
We have access to the greatest power in the universe 

Each new day, prayer is the chariot to the promises of He 
Who, compelled by His own promise breathes through man, divine decree 

Each new day, without exception, we may kneel before the One 
Who ordained sinner’s redemption through the shed blood of His Son 

Each new day, pray righteous pleasure mingles with each earnest plea 
As the treasure of faith’s measure echoes through eternity 

Each new day, though we may not bear witness to His full reply 
Pray, lest we deny the power that no other can supply 

Each new day pray; as hope’s Prancer charges from thought’s courts of clay 
Already God’s perfect answer meets the whisper on its way

This is the confidence we have in approaching God: 
that if we ask anything according to his will, he hears us. 
15And if we know that he hears us—
whatever we ask—we know that we have what we asked of him.
