"Praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit,
and watching thereunto with all perseverance and supplication for all saints."
~ Ephesians 6:18 ~
Sweet hour of prayer, sweet hour of prayer, that calls me from a world of care,
And bids me at my Father's throne make all my wants and wishes known!
In seasons of distress and grief my soul has often found relief,
And oft escapes the tempter's snare by thy return, sweet hour of prayer.
Sweet hour of prayer, sweet hour of prayer, thy wings shall my petition bear
To Him whose truth and faithfulness engage the waiting soul to bless;
And since He bids me seek His face, believe His Word and trust His grace,
I'll cast on Him my ev'ry care, and wait for thee, sweet hour of prayer.
Sweet hour of prayer, sweet hour of prayer, may I thy consolation share,
Till from Mount Pisgah's lofty height I view my home and take my flight:
This robe of flesh I'll drop, and rise to seize the everlasting prize,
And shout, while passing through the air, "Farewell, farewell, sweet hour of prayer!"
~ William W. Walford ~
"Between the humble and contrite heart and the majesty of heaven
there are no barriers; the only password is prayer."
~ Hosea Ballou ~
