Isaiah 26:3

You will keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on You, because he trusts in You.”

Years ago I recall listening to a sermon tape by Donald Grey Barnhouse, a prominent pastor and teacher. He had just completed an evangelistic meeting several hundred miles from his home in Philadelphia, when he was given a telegram. It informed him that his son had been in a serious accident and was near death.

His only way back to Philadelphia was by rail. As Dr. Barnhouse entered his sleeper, his spirit was greatly disturbed. He knew that it would be hours before his train arrived back home and that there was nothing he could do but leave his son in God’s hands.

As he prayed, he recalled a phrase from Isaiah 65:25, “- – – but dust will be the serpent’s food.” Using that passage he asked the Lord to feed the serpent dust, but to please grant him a good night’s rest. He fell fast asleep and the next thing he knew the porter was touching his shoulder to tell him that they were nearing Philadelphia.

The Lord had answered his prayer. His son lived and during his time of recuperation he committed his life to full time Christian service. If you have been having trouble getting to sleep at night, ask the Lord to give you His blessed rest and feed the serpent dust.

To You Before the Close of Day

To you before the close of day,
Creator of the world we pray!

Your grace and peace to us allow,
And be our guard and keeper now.

From evil dreams defend our sight,
From all the terrors of the night.

From all deluding thoughts that creep,
On heedless minds disarmed by sleep.

O Father, this we ask be done,
Through Jesus Christ, Your only Son.

Who with the Holy Spirit and with You,
Shall live and reign all ages through. Amen.
