Robinson: prayer like a dove

Thursday, September 17, 2020
    Feast of St. Hildegard, Abbess of Bingen, Visionary, 1179
    Therefore confess your sins to each other and pray for each other so that you may be healed. The prayer of a righteous man is powerful and effective.
    —James 5:16 (NIV)
    Prayer is like the dove that Noah sent forth, which blessed him not only when it returned with an olive-leaf in its mouth, but when it never returned at all.
    ... Edward Robinson (1794-1863), from Job, ascribed by M. G. Easton (see the book)
    See also Jas. 5:16; Gen. 8:8-12; Matt. 6:5-6; Luke 22:40
Quiet time reflection:
    Spirit of God, pray within me.
