[July 1]
And Isaac went out to meditate [to pray—margin] in the field at eventide. Genesis 24:63
HOW impossible it is for a child of God, remembering and impressed by the events of the day, as to the Lord's wisdom and care and the surety that all things shall work for good—how impossible, we say, for such a one to retire to rest without thankfulness of heart to him upon whose power and promises they have leaned throughout the day: and how appropriate to bow the knee as well as the heart, to render homage as well as thanks. Z'85-Nov., p.4 R799:3(Hymn 274)
