Risky Dreamers ~ 2* NEW BEGINNING
Where can I go? What can I seek? For Jesus must first increase in me and I must decrease to me.
INCOMPREHENSIBLE, GREAT, AND GLORIOUS GOD,
I adore and approach You as a man many times humbled, always needing further humility.
My thoughts and actions are not screened from Your gaze, nor my secret sins. These You see full well, yet in mercy You do not count them or bank them.
Enable me to remember Your Son's blood that cleanses me:
to hold sturdy His grace which subdues all iniquity
and deliver me from the bondage of corruption
into the glorious liberty of the sons of God.
You have begun a good work in me,
and without You I can't continue and complete it.
Give me an increasing conviction of my tendency to err,
and of my exposure to sin.
Help me feel more of the purifying, softening influence of Christianity,
its compassion, love, pity, courtesy, righteousness,
and employ me as Your instrument in blessing others.
Give me to distinguish between:
the mere form of godliness and its power,
guile and truth,
hypocrisy and a faith that will honor Your sight.
If I am not right, set me right, keep me right;
and may I at last come to Your house in peace. AMEN
But who can discern their own errors? Forgive my hidden faults. Keep your servant also from willful sins; may they not rule over me. Then I will be blameless, innocent of great transgression. (Psalm 19:12-13)
