Glory and Agony

 "Prayer...is in one aspect glory and blessedness; in another, it is toil and travail, battle and agony."

The Hidden Life of Prayer  by D.M. M'Intyre

Triumph in Tribulation

"...let a man once obtain the pardon of sin, the favour of God, and a believing view and prospect of the glory to come, and it is so easy to triumph in tribulation, in such a station as that is, that it will be found as hard to hinder it, as to hinder a man from laughting when he is tickled."
John Flavel  A Treatise on Fear
