Never Under Estimate The Power Of Prayer

Ten years ago last January, I was told by three top eye specialists that I had Ďwetí macular degeneration in both eyes; and that I could be blind to central vision within about eighteen months. It was also detected that I had Glaucoma, which attacks peripheral vision, but could be treated with eye drops. Well, Iím glad to say that last month I past the eye tests so that at 79 I have Ďthe all clear to driveí for another three years when another test is again required. So, dear friend, whatever your problem, never give up: pray for improvement. Look for it;. be always positive. Never underestimate either alternative therapies or natureís gracious herbs. For myself, Iím thankful to a recent therapist and friend who has been a ĎGod sendí And as for the transforming power of prayer, here is a poem about it that has blest me down past decades. I only wish I knew its author. Can anyone enlighten me?

In the hush of the valley of silence I see all the songs that I sing
While the music floats down the dim valley; till each finds a word for a wing;
That to hearts, like the dove of the deluge, a message of peace they may bring

But far on the deep there are billows that never will break on the beach;
And I have heard sounds in that silence, too lofty for language to reach.

And I have had dreams in that valley. Ah me, how my spirit was stirred.
They walk through the valley like virgins; too pure for the touch of a word!

Do you ask me the name of that valley; you hearts that are harrowed by care?
Well, it layeth afar between mountains, and God and His angels are there.

One is the dark mountain of sorrow; the otherís the bright mountain of prayer
