My mother-in-law bought it at a flea market for $1.00
in about 1959. I inherited it from her.
This note is in the inside front cover:

The title page tells you the book, written by Rev. J.H. Jowett, M.A.,
is intended to be used as a prayer for every day of the year.

The copyright page gives valuable tips,
as valid today as they were 113 years ago!

Today is December 22nd.
The prayer for today is one I want to share with you.
(I pray I am not breaking copyright laws by sharing this!)

Pray with me, will you?
(And enjoy the beautiful, lyrical language of 113 years ago.)

“Lord of all life, wilt Thou quicken me in the ministry of Thy life-giving Spirit? May no part of my being remain in deadly insensitivity. May I be alive unto God! May all my powers aspire after Thee, as flowers after the sun.”   AMEN!

We all need more peace
Quiet time is essential
Go and find your space

 

We all need our own daily Quiet Time!
When and where do you find yours?

When I Pause


WHEN I PAUSE

Sometimes when I pause

I hear the earth breathe –

I feel the breath of God

In the rustle of the trees.

Sometimes in the silence

God speaks to my longing soul.

To hear God’s voice and heed God

In the stillness, is my goal.

Sometimes in the quiet

God reaches from above.

With fingers long and gentle,

God touches me with love.

Where I am, God is –

I know God’s always near.

So, in the silence, listen –

God whispers, be still and hear.

When I pause, God whispers.

I hear God when I’m still.

In the silence, listen –

Then heed and do God’s will.
