Though the fig tree does not bud
and there are no grapes on the vines,
though the olive crop fails and the
fields produce no food, though there
are no sheep in the pen and no cattle
in the stalls, yet I will rejoice in
the LORD, I will be joyful in God my
Savior. (Hab. 3:17-18)

the best for us.
2. The wisdom of God that knows
what is best for us.
3. The power of God that can
accomplish it.
What the Church needs today is
not more machinery or better,
not new organizations or more
novel methods, but men whom the
Holy Ghost can use--men of
prayer, men mighty in prayer.

Letters to God By Bev Condy
May I write You letters God
To tell You how I feel?
May I put on paper
The thoughts that are so real?
The ache that's surging in my heart
The tears that seem to flow-
Am I telling You something new
Or do You already know?
To say with ink and pen
That You know my every care,
Are these just letters that I write
Or do You call it prayer?
No words make prayer,
only a heart reaching out
to God is prayer.
You may speak Spanish, German,
any dialect; God can understand,
He made the languages, He made you.
You may express no words,
only long for God
to make you wholly His.
The intensity of your desire
is prayer.
No words make prayer.
only a heart reaching out
To God is prayer.
