Thoughtful Thursday

"I have come to know that God can smooth my path, calm the storms, keep me and all I care about safe, and even make my way simple when I ask Him to carry the complexities of life for me.  But these things don't just happen.  
Not without prayer."

- Stormie Omartian, The Power of a Praying Woman

"Do we want praying young people in our churches?
We must have praying mothers to give them birth,
Praying homes to flavour their lives, 
And praying surroundings to impress their minds 
And to lay the foundations for praying lives.
Praying Samuels come from praying Hannahs.
Praying priests come from 'the house of prayer.'
Praying leaders come from praying homes." 

- E.M. Bounds 

"I will pray the Father, and He will give you another Helper, that He may abide with you forever - the Spirit of truth, whom the world cannot receive, because it neither sees Him nor knows Him; but you know Him, for He dwells with you and will be in you."

- John 14:16-17

Blessings to you, dear readers!

 ~ Let us hold fast to the confession of our hope without wavering, for He who promised is faithful. ~

Pretty painting that captures a tranquil moment in a garden, and I like "we must have praying mothers."
