TOPIC:  Leanin’ Sides

Who is this that cometh up from the wilderness, leaning upon her beloved? — Song 8:5

Someone gained a good lesson from a Southern prayer meeting. A brother asked the Lord for various blessings—as you and I do, and thanked the Lord for many already received—as you and I do; but he closed with this unusual petition: “And, O Lord, support us! Yes support us Lord on every leanin’ side!” Have you any leaning sides? This humble man’s prayer pictures them in a new way and shows the Great Supporter in a new light also. He is always walking by the Christian, ready to extend His mighty arm and steady the weak one on “every leanin’ side.”
