DAILY?READINGS: Exodus 23:10-33; Psalms 66-67; Acts 13:1-25

One of his disciples said unto him, Lord teach us to pray. Luke 11:1

At a group discussion on prayer, a teenage girl expressed surprise about receiving an answer to her prayer even before verbalizing it to God. It reminds us of Isaiah 45:24, “Before they call I will answer.” Most answers do come from spoken petitions, but we may also agree with an 18th century hymn writer who penned, “Prayer is the burden of a sigh, the falling of a tear.” Some deeply felt needs seem inexpressible. But if the heart’s sincere desire rises silently on a wing of prayer, God hears that cry from the darkness of the soul. —E. Dyck

The saints, in prayer appear as one;
In word, and deed and mind,
While with the Father and the Son;
Sweet fellowship they find. —James Montgomery
