God is always fair and just Do you deserve justice or mercy? O Lord, do not rebuke me in your anger or discipline me in your rage. Have compassion on me, Lord, for I am weak. Heal me, Lord, for my body is in agony. I am sick at heart. How long, O Lord, until […]

A wife prays for her husband’s salvation
After a rather gentle talk [one evening] about Christianity, [my wife Davy] went to bed, leaving me lying upon the sofa in front of the fire reading.…A half hour passed. I let the book fall and switched off the lamp. Gazing upon the glowing coals, I wondered with a strange mixture of hope and fear whether Christ might be in very truth my God. Suddenly I became aware that Davy was praying beside me — she had stolen into the room in her nightgown and knelt down by the sofa. I looked at the quiet figure for a few moments. I have never seen her pray. Then she spoke.”When I was in bed,” she said very softly, “it seemed to me that God was telling me to come to you. I have prayed to God to fulfill your soul.”She paused a moment, and then she whispered: “Oh, my dearest — please believe!”
Moved almost to tears, I whispered back — a broken whisper, she wrote in the Journal [the book we both kept of our searching for God and truth] — I whispered, “Oh, I do believe.” I was shaken by the affirmation that swept over me.
“Hold to this moment,” she murmured. “Hold to it when doubts come. This is the truth — I know it it.”
