Thinking About…

Unless we understand that the word is stronger than the will; unless we know how to approach a word with all the joy, the hope or the grief we own, prayer will hardly come to pass. The words must not fall off our lips like dead leaves in the autumn. They must rise like birds out of the heart into the vast expanse of eternity.–Abraham Joshua Heschel, Man’s Quest for God

    Loved the way this was put- stunning! The words:rise like birds out of the heart reminded me of James 5.16 [Ampilfied]The earnest (heartfelt, continued) prayer of a righteous man makes tremendous power available [dynamic in its working].

    Thanks Laura- a solid gold nugget!!
