If you are at a loss how to proceed, which way to turn, remember your Father’s letter of full and explicit instructions. Go to it and Him for direction. Following this rule there is no possibility of mistakes.

Pansies by Paul de Longpre 1900The reason why we so little understand God, and are so little able to appreciate his love, is that we plan out our lives by our ignorance, and doubt God if he does not help us carry out the plan. The best thing for us may not be what we want.

William Powell Frith_PrayerWhat need has God of our prayer? No need.

Can we tell him anything? No.

Does he not know what things we have need of before we ask him? Yes.

Why, then, should he call upon us to tell him what he knows, to ask him for what he well understands we need?

For our sakes. We learn things by doing them. We get answers by prayer, and in prayer.
