CQOD: 02/08/07 -- Church: the House of Prayer

Christian Quotation of the Day

February 8, 2007
    Come and hear, all you who fear God, and I will tell what he has done for my soul.
    -- Psalm 66:16 (ESV)

    Here in His holy House of Prayer we may come on our day of rest, and be safe, if we will, from any thoughts but those of the world to come. Here we gather together for no earthly business, but for a purpose of one sort only; and that purpose is the same for which saints and angels are met together in that innumerable company before the throne of God. If there is a place on earth which, however faintly and dimly, shadows out the courts of God on high, surely it is where His people are met together, in all their weakness and ignorance and sin, in their poor and low estate, yet with humble and faithful hearts, in His House of Prayer.
    ... R. W. Church (1815-1890), Village Sermons [1897]

Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, I am not worthy to be heard in Your courts, but in Your grace, receive my prayer.
