Prayer an unfailing resource

Psalm 30:8
I cried to Thee, O Lord; and unto the Lord, I made supplication.

Prayer is the unfailing resource of God’s people. If they are driven to their wits’ end, they may still go to the mercy seat.

When an earthquake makes our mountain tremble, the throne of grace still stands firm, and we may come to it.

Let us never forget to pray, and let us never doubt the success of prayer. The hand that wounds can heal; let us turn to Him who smites us, and He will be entreated of us.

Prayer is better solace than Caius building a city, or Saul’s seeking for music. Mirth and carnal amusements are a sorry prescription for a mind distracted and despairing: prayer will succeed where all else fails. – C.H. Spurgeon.

“What a friend we have in Jesus,
All our sins and griefs to bear!
What a privilege to carry
Everything to God in prayer!
Oh, what peace we often forfeit,
Oh, what needless pain we bear,
All because we do not carry
Everything to God in prayer.”
