Bible Text: Habakkuk 2:2-4; 18-20; 3:1-16 |

Studies in the book of Habakkuk

In order to grow in grace, we must be much alone. It is not in society that the soul grows most vigorously. In one single quiet hour of prayer it will often make more progress than in days of company with others. It is in the desert that the dew falls freshest and the air is purest.—Andew Bonar.

Alone With God

In silence, at the close of day,
When sun and light have gone away,
I kneel in solitude to pray,
Alone with God.

When sad, I count my every care,
And all the grief that I must bear;
Then close my eyes in peaceful prayer,
Alone with God.
When triumph brings me joy anew,
And I feel blessed in all I do,
I ne'er forget my rendezvous
Alone with God.
Through life, I always want to be
A Christian of reality,
And keep that hour so dear to me,
Alone with God.
—David L. Diehl.
