Let all those that seek Thee rejoice and be glad in Thee, The Lord be magnified

Let all those that seek Thee rejoice and be glad in Thee; let such as love Thy salvation say continually, The Lord be magnified.—Psalm 40:16.

Then will I go unto the altar of God; unto God, my exceeding joy.—Psalm 43:4.

 

We doubt the word that tells us: Ask,

And ye shall have your prayer;

We turn our thoughts as to a task,

With will constrained and rare,

And yet we have; these scanty prayers

Yield gold without alloy

O God, but he who trusts and dares

Must have a boundless joy!

George Macdonald.

 

Tell them that, until religion cease to be a burden, it is nothing,—until prayer cease to be a weariness, it is nothing. However difficult and however imperfect, the spirit must still rejoice in it.

Edward Irving.

 

From a weary laborer, worn with slavish and ineffectual toil, I had become as a little child receiving from God the free gift of eternal life and of daily sustenance; and prayer, from a weary spiritual exercise, had become the simple asking from the Heavenly Father of daily bread, and thanking Him.

Elizabeth Rundle Charles.
