Sips from Ancient Wells

images-24Much of a Christians spiritual strength lies in secret prayer, as Samson’s did in his hair. Nothing disarms Satan and disarms sin like this. Secret prayers are the pillars of smoke wherein the soul ascends to God out of the wilderness of this world. Secret prayer is Jacob’s ladder, where you have God descending into the soul, and the soul sweetly ascending to God. Secret meals are very fattening, and secret duties are very soul enriching.”  Thomas Brooks
