Pray

The most powerful thing you can do

is pray – yet it needs no electric or gasoline “power.” Prayer can be experienced by the educated and the uneducated. It can be done alone, or in a group. And Prayer is always best when it is from the heart.

SOUNDS

Sound only carries so far

In our varied earthy air.

But don’t take it for it granted

It will be the same UP ^ there.

 

UP ^ His praise will be glorious,

Anthems will be full and abounding,

Thanks will be freely given for

“God’s grace” firmly re-sounding.

 

How far will such rejoicing carry?

Possible from star to distant star.

Echoing through His universe

At unknown distance, most far.

 

Will sound also carry far

In that horrid other place?

DOWN  \/ there where are gathered

Those who rejected God’s grace.

 

Some sinners here revel in noise, 

Cars and dives throb with sound;

DOWN \/ such sad souls may find,  

Screams, gnashing, super abound.

 

But some sinners liking things more quiet,

Would seek the wilderness, the nook.

Terrible sounds are DOWN \/ there, friend;

Change, pray, read and believe the Book.

Don’t be scared into voting.  

 

Period.  OR into voting for X.  

 

My dad voted for FDR (Franklin Delano Roosevelt)

 

later asked God to forgive him (which he should have). 

 

PRAY.

 

You ARE responsible for whom you vote.

The devil has no roads, he always travels God’s roads and corrupts them.

 

The convictions that really count are not the convictions you hold [but] the convictions that hold you.

 

God’s commands to pray are really veiled personal letters inviting us into His presence.

 

We only enjoy what we share.

 

It takes God time to make a man.

 

             – Steve Herron quotes – from various sermons 

Stephen Douglas Herron died this date (2/25/1994) in Charlotte, NC.  (His signature was “Steve D. Herron.” )  His vision started Hobe Sound Bible College and Wesleyan Education Association of America. 

He was one of the greatest men I ever knew – the greatest man for whom I worked.  I consider him my educational father.  Probaly no man have I missed more than I have the late, great Steve Herron.
