_I have called upon Thee, for Thou wilt hear me, O God: incline Thine ear unto me, and hear my speech_.–PS. xvii. 6.
Ye people, pour out your heart before Him: God is a refuge for us.–PS. lxii. 8.

Whate’er the care which breaks thy rest, Whate’er the wish that swells thy breast; Spread before God that wish, that care, And change anxiety to prayer.
JANE CREWDSON.
Trouble and perplexity drive us to prayer, and prayer driveth away trouble and perplexity.
P. MELANCTHON.
Whatsoever it is that presses thee, go tell thy Father; put over the matter into His hand, and so thou shalt be freed from that dividing, perplexing care that the world is full of. When thou art either to do or suffer anything, when thou art about any purpose or business, go tell God of it, and acquaint Him with it; yea, burden Him with it, and thou hast done for matter of caring; no more care, but quiet, sweet diligence in thy duty, and dependence on Him for the carriage of thy matters. Roll thy cares, and thyself with them, as one burden, all on thy God.
R. LEIGHTON.

  • “How very narrow is the gate that leads to a life in God! (Mt 7:14) How little one must be to pass through it, it being nothing else but death to self! But when we have passed through it, what enlargement do we find! David said, ‘He brought me forth also in a large place’ (Ps. 18:19). And it was through humiliation and abasement that he was brought there.” – from Madame Guyon’s autobiography Ch. 22
