You thought God was to hear and answer you by making everything straight and pleasant-not so are nations or churches or men and women born; not so is character made. God is answering your prayer in His way.
Do you know a hard-working man? He shall be successful and stand before kings!
The Living Bible
Oh! for a closer walk with God,
A calm and heavenly frame;
A light to shine upon the road
That leads me to the Lamb!
