Welcome to "Quaint Words!”
These posts will contain thoughts, poems, and prayers from old books that I have found at antique stores, flea markets, and garage sales (with an occasional treasure from a bookstore).
I love the rhythm and sound of the older English language, and am blessed by other believers who have gone before me!
"We need to pray much for our country. Perhaps we err in making our prayers ordinarily only for ourselves and for our own little world. Certainly our country ought to have a place in the daily supplications of every Christian.
Those who rule over us ought to be continually remembered. They are men, and need divine wisdom and guidance. They are men under the sway of partisan influence, and we need to pray that they be kept free from any domination which would lead them to forget God.
We need to pray for our institutions...we need to pray for all our people...that uprightness and integrity may characterize them.
'Happy is that people whose God is the Lord.'"
(From "In Green Pastures" by J. R. Miller, c. 1840-1912)
(A listing of books and authors, and also dates of individual postings from those books, will be found on my "QUAINT WORDS" page)
