(Charles Orr, "Incense from Golden Vials")
O dear praying saint, pray on! Never will one tear be lost! It is too precious! Diamonds and pearls are mere trifles--compared with your tears! Never a word of your prayer, however feeble it may seem to be--will fail to reach the ear of God! Amid the many prayers that are ascending to the throne of grace from this lower world, and amid the noise of angels' shouts and songs--He will catch the sweet strain of your feeble heart-cry, and record it in Heaven! The perfume of a prayer is never lost!
