Being constant. Faithful in prayer. Expectant to see God’s answer.  Hearing no news of change.  But still praying.

 Any Carmichael

If I cannot catch “the sound of noise of rain” long before the rain falls,

 

and, going to some hilltop of the spirit,

as near to my God as I can,

 

Have not faith to wait there with my face between my knees,

 

though six times or sixty times I am told “there is nothing”

 

till at last “there arises a little cloud out of the sea,”

 

then I know nothing of Calvary love.

— by Amy Carmichael (“if,” 1938, see also I Kings 18:41)
