William Cowper lived in the eighteenth century and was a popular hymn-
of psychiatric illness.
Apart from his hymns, two lines that he wrote are still repeated and known by Christians today. He wrote:
“Satan trembles when he sees The weakest Christian on his knees”
No one can doubt that prayer is part of a battle, where we take the side of God.
Someone has put some very helpful words in the Year of Prayer “Prayer
Book” at Addington Road:
Do you ever struggle with the idea that God doesn't hear your prayers?
Does your mind wander when you pray, and then you wonder if you’ve actually prayed at all?
If you have a mobile phone, compose text message prayers to God. You can
start ‘Dear God’…. Then send it to your own number. You have received it and God has received it too.
Write your prayer in the form of a letter. Read it out loud to God. Place it in an envelope and keep it in a special place where more of these prayer letters can be kept. They will be a record of your prayers for years to come. You will be able to look back and see how God has answered.
As the rain hides the stars,
As the autumn mists hides the hills,
As the clouds veil the blue of the sky,
So the dark happenings of my life
Hide the shining of your face from me.
Yet, if I may hold your hand in darkness,
It is enough; since I know that,
Though I may stumble in my going,
You do not fall.
