“Oh, send out Your light and Your truth! Let them lead me; let them bring me to Your holy hill and to Your tabernacle.” Psalm 43:3
“But the path of the just is like the shining sun, that shines ever brighter unto the perfect day.” Proverbs 4:18
The wiser we are in our own conceits, the more negligent we are in prayer and more destitute of true wisdom and faith. The Lord gives sight to the blind and to the babes who pray for it. Therefore the deepest humblings go before the greatest blessings.
O my blessed Savior, since I am always blind and ignorant of myself, if I am not guided by Your eyes, I desire always to look up to You and do everything under Your direction — sitting down like a little child at Your feet, and submitting my will wholly to Yours.
- Give me so much of Your Spirit, that under all my trials, troubles, and conflicts I may say, “Not my will — but Yours be done.”
- Preserve me from dictating to my heavenly Father or complaining of any of His dispensations.
- Lead me by Your hand; keep me at Your side, and whisper to me as I pass along, “I have loved you with an everlasting love; therefore with loving-kindness I have drawn you.”
- Conduct me to the hill, where You hold communion with Your people now, and at last raise me to the mount of God, to be forever with the Lord.
