Prayer is the beginning and the end, the source and the fruit,
the core and the content, the basis and the goal of all peacemaking.

I am content”

    So true. Prayer is our avenue to directly communicating with God. How sweet is that?

    Gotta love that truth jewels……..where……….sin abounded. As in the hearts of men
    Now some geography to make you, me, we, delight further.

    WHERE sin abounded? Aah, many places on earth, but none so undeserving of favor as that city of the great King….WHERE also our Lord was crucified.

    And this grace abounded? Yep, right there in Jerusalem, WHERE first this offer went forth.

    God’s word is so good and rich, eh?

    • so true CS…and all I can think about is that commentator over on Wally’s site making that snide remark about Jerusalem when Wally was on his trip….it is the one true epicenter of the very salvation for man…a far cry from an imagined Disneyesque panacea….
