 always to pray, and not to faint

' . . . .always to pray, and not to faint. . . . Luke XVIII. 1, R. V.

AND never faint: Oh! pray
Full on and fast;
Rough thou the untrod way
Straight on, and last.

And never faint: Though thirst
May crave for rest;
The goal, not thee, is first.
Pray on, thou blest!

And never faint: Though strain
May sigh thee down;
Pray on if thou wouldst fain
Have on the crown.

And never faint: The end
Thou may’st not view
When bound, let nought thee bend,
Press on anew.

And never faint: Thy charge
To God given o’er;
Pray on; thy tent enlarge;
Enrich thy store.

And never faint: Press on
By thorn, past rock;
Pray on till desert gone,
When none can mock.

And never faint: A “No’’
Thou wilt not have
“Abide” then “will,” and flow;
Nor answer halve.

And never faint: Ask thou
As God wills thee;
No easing answer now?
Still bend the knee.

And never faint: But pray
And never fail;
Press on through night to day,
And end thy trail.

And never faint: Pray on.
Each day, with care
Strive for, ‘till thou hast won
The answered prayer.

Evan Roberts

 Re: always to pray, and not to faint

Never faint. If we stay in prayer we won't.

Beautiful poem.

God bless.

 Re: Praying through: always to pray, and not to faint

Evan Roberts, one who prayed through to Revival. Oh the marvelous ground, the praying ground of sweeping God sent Revival.

Praying through is a concrete reality. Every bit as knowable as the forgiveness of sin at new birth, as the fullness of the Holy Spirit. Attended by like release and Joy and fellowship with Him.

Oh brothers and sisters ... Stir us Holy Father, Lord, Spirit of the Living God to pray through for revival. Now. These days.
