.

REFLECTION…

.

I lift up my eyes…in supplication and prayer…

to my God.

.

Isn’t it special

that we humans feel naturally prompted to look up when we address God!

.

The heart must know that He is the most exalted of all beings,

dwelling above all

and so I is with our soul, that reaches up for its Maker.

.

.

.

QUOTE…

.

Prayer is the soul’s sincere desire,

unuttered or expressed,

the motion of a hidden fire

that trembles in the breast.

.

Prayer is the burden of a sigh,

the falling of a tear,

the upward glancing of an eye,

when none but God is near.

.

Prayer is the simplest form of speech

that infant lips can try;

prayer the sublimest strains that reach

the Majesty on high.

.

Prayer is the contrite sinners’ voice,

returning from their way,

while angels in their songs rejoice

and cry, "Behold, they pray!"

.

– from the hymn “Prayer Is the Soul’s Sincere Desire”, by James Montgomery.

.

.

.

PRAYER…

.

To You I lift up my eyes, to You who dwell in the heavens,

to You who are always looking out for me!
