The Forerunner of Mercy

Prayer is the prelude of mercy
The preface to blessing from heaven
The shadow before the deliverance
The assurance His answer is given

Peace through the blood of the cross
Help when grave dangers abound
As the sunlight of mercy is seen
Note the shadow of prayer on the ground

Our pleadings are shadows of mercy
His grace seen in times of despair
The darkness of night will withdraw
Hallowed ground when we travail in prayer

Ezekiel 36:37
'Thus saith the LORD God; I will yet for this be enquired of by the house of Israel, to do it for them'
Psalm 34:4
'I sought the LORD, and He heard me, and delivered me from all my fears'
