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