Prayer Guide

He is like a man building a house, who dug down deep, and laid the foundation on bedrock. When a flood came, the river burst against that house but could not shake it, because it had been well built.

[Luke 6:48 NET]

Each reaching and aspiration is an instinct with which all nature consists and cooperates, and therefore it is not in vain. If a man believes and expects great things of himself it makes no odds where you put him, he will be surrounded by grandeur.

~ Henry David Thoreau ~

If you have built castles in the air, your work need not be lost—that is where they should be: now put foundations under them.

~ Henry David Thoreau ~

Lord of strength,

I pray that while I may lay a strong foundation for my life, I may remember that I should not delay the building by neglecting to complete the plans. May I look to-day and see if I am making my words stronger than my life. With thy wisdom help me to realize that the test of life is made with the soul.

Amen.
