A depth my soul longs for…

I was brought up in a small denomination that looked down
on written prayers insisting that all the individual needed to pray was themselves
and the Holy Spirit.  Truth be told I
admire a lot of what that particular faith movement stood for as it set off in
the early part of the last century but as time passed and traditions grew they
lost their way.  Most movements tend to
be effected by the passing of time in the same way.
I sat in a prayer meeting about 6 months ago and listened
as a highly esteemed member read from this book. 
I was instantly captured by the authors beautiful workmanship as we
prayed in the early hours of that particular morning.  This book which to this point I had never
come across before was written many years ago but still stands strong and worthy of
reading and using.  This is the first
paragraph of this morning’s prayer and it really struck a chord with me.  Many of the prayers pray at a depth my soul
longs for but head can’t reach.  I’m not
sure if that makes sense but as you read the photographed paragraph below maybe
you will experience what I mean.

As we enter November and the time for Christmas shopping fast
approaches why not think of purchasing this classic for a loved ones
stocking.  I promise you won’t regret it and that they will be blessed by it… Talk soon.

Ps. Over the weekend the blog has had some updates & additions made to it… these include the addition of a glossary, a bookshelf (see tabs across the top of the website) and a Spotify play button for those of you that have Spotify.  Enjoy!
