A Prayer for You Today (1)

November 7, 2022

A prayer for you today.




You are the Creator, Upholder, Proprietor of all
I cannot escape from Your presence or control,
nor do I desire to do so.
My privilege is to be under the agency of
omnipotence, righteousness, wisdom,
patience, mercy, grace.
You are love with more than parental affection;
I admire Your heart, adore Your wisdom,
stand in awe of Thy power, abase myself before
Your purity.


It is the discovery of Your goodness alone that can
banish my fear,
bring me into Your presence,
help me to bewail and confess my sins.
When I review my past guilt
and am conscious of my present unworthiness
I tremble to come to You,
I whose foundation is in the dust,
I who have condemned Your goodness,
defied Your power,
trampled upon Your love,
rendered myself worthy of eternal death.


But my recovery cannot spring from any cause
in me,
I can destroy but cannot save myself.
Yet You have laid help on One that is mighty,
for there is mercy with You,
and exceeding riches in Your kindness
through Jesus.


May I always feel my need for Him.
Let Your joy be my strength;
May it keep me from lusting after the world,
bear up heart and mind in loss of comforts,
enliven me in the valley of death,
work in me the image of the heavenly,
and give to me the joy of the first fruits of spirituality,
such as angels and departed saints know. Amen.


From the Valley of Vision – Puritan Prayer Book


With all my love in the Lord Jesus Christ.
