Joy and Strength 10/12

Ye said also, Behold, what a weariness is it.
Mal. i. 13.

My soul cleaveth unto the dust; quicken Thou me according to Thy word.
Ps. cxix. 25.

Awake, thou that sleepest, and arise from the dead, and Christ shall give thee light.
Eph. v. 14.

THERE are some who give up their prayers because they have so little feeling in their prayers — so little warmth of feeling. But who told us that feeling was to be a test of prayer? The work of prayer is a far too noble and necessary work to be laid aside for any lack of feeling. Press on, you who are dry and cold in your prayers, press on as a work and as a duty, and the Holy Spirit will, in His good time, refresh your prayers Himself.
Arthur F. Winnington Ingram.

You do not feel in the spirit of prayer; you have no spiritual uplift; you are simply indifferent. Give that unhappy mood no heed. You know very well what you ought to do. You ought to present yourself before God; you ought to say your prayers. Do that, and the devout attitude, the bended knees, the folded hands, the quiet and the silence, the lips busied with holy words, will induce the consciousness of the divine presence, and help you to pray in spirit and in truth.
George Hodges.
