  1. 1. 0………. 4 --article continued from page 1— Are we confident that our light is bright Vol. 47 July 5, 2022 Number 26 DID YOU THINK TO PRAY Barry Kennedy Of all the great blessings we have been given through Christ, prayer should be one of the most precious. Of course, forgiveness of sins, hope, grace, etc., are all wonderful blessings and should never be taken for granted, but how awesome is it to know that we can step into the very throne room of God. “Let us therefore come boldly unto the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy, and find grace to help in time of need” (Hebrews 4:16). God has offered mankind a golden opportunity to have an audience with Him whenever we want or need Him. “God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble” (Psalm 46:1). Getting through life without God should be unimaginable, yet many people are choosing to go through life without God, never willing to ask for His blessings or seek His forgiveness (James 4). Yet, there are still many who long for communication with the Almighty. They read His Word to hear His will and direction and they open their hearts to Him in prayer. In fact, some have written hymns concerning prayer. For example, in 1875 Mary A. Kidder wrote the lyrics to the song “Did You Think to Pray.” Consider a couple of points Kidder set forth in this song and how we should answer the question, “Did You Think to Pray?”. Verse one: Ere you left your room this morning, Did you think to pray? In the name of Christ our Savior, Did you sue for loving favor, As a shield today? As we begin the business of the day do we start with a word of prayer? Do we petition the Almighty in search of His favor, and ask Him to be our shield of defense (Psalm 91:1-9)? Faith is our shield (Ephesians 6:16), and faith comes by hearing the word of God (Romans 10:17). That does not mean that we can leave God out of our plans and expect a victory (Matthew 26:41). Can we answer, “Yes, I thought to pray.” Refrain: Oh, how praying rests the weary! Prayer will change the night to day; So when life seems dark and dreary, Don’t forget to pray. Prayer should be a rest to God’s children. Prayer is the Christian’s opportunity to cast all his cares upon God, with a heart full of assurance that He cares for His own (1Peter 5:7). It gives a Christian the ability to put the cares of this world behind him (Philippians 4:6), and reach forth to a brighter home awaiting (John 14:1-6; Philippians 3:13- 14). Mary Kidder wrote three other verses to this song, emphasizing prayer in times of temptation, anger, and trails. All the while asking, “Did You Think to Pray?” Well, did we?

  2. 2. The Rule of “Three” • Three things to govern: Temper, tongue, conduct • Three things to cultivate: Courage, affection, gentleness • Three things to commend: Thrift, industry, promptness • Three things to despise: Cruelty, arrogance, ingratitude • Three things to wish for: Health, contentment, friends • Three things to admire: Dignity, intellect, gracefulness “I will lift up my eyes to the hills—From whence comes my help? My help comes from the Lord, who made heaven and earth. He will not allow your foot to be moved; He who keeps you will not slumber” (Psalm 121:1-3). By House to House Heart to Heart, Archive 3718 The Privilege of Knowing God Paul confided, “For this reason I also suffer these things; nevertheless I am not ashamed, for I know whom I have believed and am persuaded that He is able to keep what I have committed to Him until that Day” (2 Timothy 1:12). He said, “I know whom [not merely what] I have believed.” The Christian’s assurance is linked to God the Father’s character. God the Father has some astonishing metaphysical attributes: • Self-existent (Psalm 90:2; John 5:26) • Eternal (Psalm 90:1-2) • Omniscient (Hebrews 4:13) • Omnipotent (Daniel 4:35) • Holy (1 Peter 1:15-16; Revelation 4) • Faithful and just (John 7:24) • Merciful (Titus 3:4-7) He has an even more amazing moral characteristic: God is a being of absolute love (1 John 4:8, 11). This is one of the great themes of the New Testament (John 3:16; 10:28-29; Romans 8:31-39; Ephesians 2:5, 8-9; 1 Peter 1:3-5; 1 John 4:7-21). God’s love shows that He gave His Son to die in our place (John 3:16), while we were yet sinners (Romans 5:8). It also shows that He does not want a single person to be lost (2 Peter 3:9; 1 Timothy 2:4).
