Royal Insignia—Blog No. 2
Royal Insignia by E. & L. Harvey focuses on the theme of humility Here is what several saints of the past had to say on this subject:

Archbishop Fénelon: “He who is conscious,” he said, “that he is lowering himself has not yet reached his true place, which is below all lowering. Such as these are very proud in their humility, which, indeed, is often but a subtle spirit of vain glory. And this is not the humility which will enter into Heaven, unless it acquires pure charity, which alone is worthy of God, and which He delights to fill with Himself.

George Herbert and Marguerite Estaver

“Since then, these three wait on Thy throne,
Ease, Power, and Love, I value prayer so,
That were I to leave but one,
Wealth, fame, endowments, virtues,–all should go;
I and dear prayer would together dwell,
And quickly gain, for each inch lost, an hell.”
–George Herbert. How They Prayed Vol. 2, p. 104.

How They Prayed Vol. 2—G. D. Watson

“ I am convinced that we have far too shallow views of that command to pray for our enemies.

The pressure and stress of our age

If you find this busy age crowding out time for prayer you are not alone. The saintliest believers today are having a struggle. It seems the enemy is doing his utmost to distract God’s children from what is their greatest weapon against him. Battles are won or lost before the fight begins. There are so many factors that make for victory. David had the victory well before he ever heard of Goliath. We do well to associate with victors if we are to gain the victory ourselves. Try reading “How They Prayed” or “They Knew Their God” for encouragement.

How They Prayed Series—Volume 3

Not in the tumult of the rending storm,
Not in the earthquake or devouring flame,
But in the hush that could all fear transform,
The still, small whisper to the Prophet came.

O Soul, keep silence on the mount of God
Though cares and needs thro round thee like a sea;
From supplications and desires unshod,
Be still, and hear what God shall say to thee.
