A Prayer for Today

in Personal Disciplines

From the Valley of Vision, here’s a prayer that asks for a right view of self and sin and salvation….EVERY day.   {notes like this are from me}

Teach me to see~

that if Christ has pacified thee and satisfied divine justice he can also deliver me from my sins; {these sins that I’m struggling with right now, today}

that Christ does not desire me, now justified, to live in self-confidence in my own strength, {if I know I need Christ to save me from past failures, certainly I need Him to keep me from falling today}

but gives me the law of the Spirit of life to enable me to obey thee;

that the Spirit and his power are mine by resting on Christ’s death;

that the Spirit of Life within answers to the law without;

(here’s my favorite part)

that if I sin not I should thank thee for it;

that if I sin I should be humbled daily under it;

that I should mourn for sin more than other men do…
