    Praise and Thanksgiving to God by Mary Wilder Tileston


    Now therefore, our God, we thank Thee, and praise Thy glorious name.
    1 CHRONICLES 29:13

    Rejoice in the Lord, ye righteous; and give thanks at the remembrance of His holiness.
    PSALMS 97:12

    AND now the wants are told, that brought
    Thy children to Thy knee;
    Here, lingering still, we ask for nought,
    But simply worship Thee.

    The hope of heaven's eternal days
    Absorbs not all the heart
    That gives Thee glory, love, and praise
    For being what Thou art.
    WILLIAM BRIGHT

    LET praise--I say not merely thanksgiving, but praise--always form an ingredient of thy prayers. We thank God for what He is to us; for the benefits which He confers, and the blessings with which He visits us. But we praise Him for what He is in Himself,--for His glorious excellences and perfections, independently of their bearing on the welfare of the creature. And it shall often happen that when thy heart is numb and torpid, and yields not to the action of prayer, it shall begin to thaw, and at last burst, like streams under the breath of spring, from their icy prison, with the warm and genial exercise of praise.

    Leave Your Cares With the Lord by Mary Wilder Tileston

    I would have you to be free from cares.
    1 CORINTHIANS 7:32 (R. V.)

    He that trusteth in the Lord, mercy shall compass him about.
    PSALMS 22:10

    I HAVE no cares, O blessed Will!
    For all my cares are Thine;
    I live in triumph, Lord, for Thou
    Hast made Thy triumphs mine.
    FREDERICK W. FABER

    LET my soul roll itself on Him, and adventure there all its weight. He bears greater matters, upholding the frame of heaven and earth, and is not troubled or burdened with it.
    ROBERT LEIGHTON

    What is needed for happy effectual service is simply to put your work into the Lord's hand, and leave it there. Do not take it to Him in prayer, saying, "Lord, guide me, Lord, give me wisdom, Lord, arrange for me," and then arise from your knees, and take the burden all back, and try to guide and arrange for yourself. Leave it with the Lord, and remember that what you trust to Him you must not worry over nor feel anxious about. Trust and worry cannot go together.

    Do not forget to pray each day you wake up thank Lord Jesus the Christ for everything He has done for you, do not forget to pray for your food, and do not forget to pray before you go to bed, for you could have said or done something unrighteous.
