Job 34

v9

For he hath said, It profiteth a man nothing that he should delight himself with God.

We shouldn't consider the things of the Lord, like praying and studying the Bible, to be a weariness.

When we pray, we should ask the Lord for what would delight us (within what is right). We should believe that our praying will make a difference, instead of thinking it will profit nothing.

From: Sweet Hour of Prayer

By William Walford, 1845 and William Bradbury, 1861
Sweet hour of prayer! sweet hour of prayer!
That calls me from a world of care,
And bids me at my Father’s throne
Make all my wants and wishes known.
In seasons of distress and grief,
My soul has often found relief
And oft escaped the tempter’s snare
By thy return, sweet hour of prayer!

Sweet hour of prayer! sweet hour of prayer!
Thy wings shall my petition bear
To Him whose truth and faithfulness
Engage the waiting soul to bless.
And since He bids me seek His face,
Believe His Word and trust His grace,
I’ll cast on Him my every care,
And wait for thee, sweet hour of prayer!
