Today's prayer.....

"Thou hast placed me in the church
Which Thy Son purchased with His own blood.
Add grace to grace that I may live worthy
of my vocation.

I am a voyager across life's ocean;
Safe in Heaven's ark, may I pass through
a troubled world.
into the harbor of eternal rest.

I am a tree of the vineyard Thou hast planted.
Grant me not to be barren, with worthless
leaves and wild grapes;
Prune me of useless branches;
Water me with dews of blessing.
I am part of the Lamb's bride, the church.
Help me to be true, faithful, loving, chaste,
pure, devoted.

May I live high above a love of things temporal,
sanctified, cleansed, unblemished, hallowed
by grace,
Thy love my fullness,
Thy glory my joy,
Thy precepts my pathway,
Thy cross my resting place.

I look forward to the days of heaven,
when no langour shall oppress,
no iniquities chill,
no mists of unbelief dim the eye,
no zeal ever tires.
Father, these thoughts are the stay, prop,
and comfort of my soul."

"Seek ye the LORD while he may be found, call ye upon him while he is near: For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, saith the LORD. For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways, and my thoughts than your thoughts. For as the rain cometh down, and the snow from heaven, and returneth not thither, but watereth the earth, and maketh it bring forth and bud, that it may give seed to the sower, and bread to the eater: So shall my word be that goeth forth out of my mouth: it shall not return unto me void, but it shall accomplish that which I please, and it shall prosper in the thing whereto I sent it."
Isaiah 55:6,8-1
