I have been meaning to type some of these wonderful words out for quite some time. Streams in the Desert has been around for while and I came across a large print edition at the thrift store. I am so glad I snatched it up because it is full of rich little lessons based on the scriptures. Here are a few little snippets:
What Jesus gathered into his life from His prayers we can never know; but this we do know, that the prayerless life is a powerless life. A prayerless life may be a noisy life, and fuss around a great deal; but such a life is far removed from Him who, by day and night, prayed to God.
