M. E. Barber

“ASK in faith,” in Jesus’ dear Name,

Bring your pleas before the throne;

As you trust, the Lord will whisper,

“See, My child, the work is done.”


“Ask in faith,” God waits to answer

Each petition, Spirit-wrought;

He will work in wondrous power,

Far beyond your highest thought.


“Ask in faith,” ’tis just the asking,

In a faith that dares to stand

Full of joyful expectation,

With an open, outstretched hand.


“Ask in faith,” for God is waiting

For thy faith-filled, earnest prayer.

Faith delights Him, faith can touch Him,

Every moment, everywhere.
