Henry W. Frost on Prayer

Henry W. Frost

Henry W. Frost

Nothing so pleases God in connection with our prayer as our praise, and nothing so blesses the man who prays as the praise he offers.  I got a great blessing once in China in this connection.  I had received  bad and sad news from home, and deep shadows had covered my soul.  I prayed, but the darkness did not vanish.  I summoned myself to endure, but the darkness only deepened.  Just then I went to an island station and saw on the wall of the mission home these words: “Try Thanksgiving.”  I did, and in a moment every shadow was gone, not to return. Yes, the psalmist was right: “It is a good to give thanks unto the Lord.”  – Henry W. Frost, China Inland Mission
