Sunday Favorites- "Tell God"

"Tell God all that is in your heart, as one unloads one's heart to a dear friend. People who have no secrets from each other never lack subjects of conversation; they do not weigh their words, because there is nothing to be kept back. Neither do they seek for something to say; they talk out of the abundance of their hearts, just what they think. Blessed are they who attain to such familiar, unreserved intercourse with God.

Yet--

How rare to find a soul still enough to hear God speak."
-Francois De Fenelon

Thank You, Father, for this moment of quiet, and for the strength to pick up my tasks again, renewed and refreshed because I have paused to be with You. For the sake of Jesus Christ our Lord, Amen. -Sherwood E. Wirt, "The Quiet Corner"


"The privilege of prayer to me is one of the most cherished possessions because faith and experience alike convince me that God Himself sees and answers, and His answers I never venture to criticize. It is only my part to ask. It is entirely His to give or withhold, as He knows is best. If it were otherwise, I would not dare to pray at all. In the quiet of home, in the heat of life and strife, in the face of death, the privilege of speech with God is inestimable. I value it more because it calls for nothing that the wayfaring man, though a fool, cannot give - that is, the simplest expression to his simplest desire. When I can neither see, nor hear, nor speak, still I can pray so that God can hear. When I finally pass through the valley of the shadow of death, I expect to pass through it in conversation with Him."
-Sir Wilfred Grenfell

  4. Hello Lisa...

    Ohhh...I love your beautiful photos, Lisa...and the excerpts about prayer! Very inspirational and so perfect to share with us for Sunday Favorites! Thank you, my friend!

    I know that you believe in the power of prayer, Lisa! I would like to ask a prayer request of you...for my little 8 yr. old grandson, Seth. He is going in for heart surgery on the 6th of April and of course, we are all concerned but trusting the Lord to direct the surgeon's hands and bring our sweet little Seth through victoriously! The surgical procedure can completely cure Seth...so we are thanking the Lord for His provisions! I would love for you to be praying for him, sweet lady!

    Thank you for joining in with Sunday Favorites today...a great post about prayer, my friend!

    Have a super Sunday!
