Jottings – Peace in the Darkest Storm

Jottings

Prayer is the healthy and spontaneous response of the heart that knows God to His revelation of an open heaven: a believer has learned that the love of God is so great that He does not want His children to be anxious about anything (Philippians 4). The Lord gives peace in the darkest storm and confidence in Himself in the most perplexing problems.
