A Present Salvation

Here is a prayer from The Valley of Vision that I can’t seem to move past just yet. It’s too rich to skim over.

“CREATOR AND REDEEMER GOD,

Author of all existence, source of all

blessedness,

I adore thee for making me capable of knowing thee,

for giving me reason and conscience,

for leading me to desire thee;

I praise thee for the revelation of thyself in

the gospel,

for thy heart as a dwelling place of pity,

for thy thoughts of peace towards me,

for thy patience and they graciousness,

for the vastness of they mercy.

Thou hast moved my conscience to know how

the guilty can be pardoned,

the unholy sanctified,

the poor enriched.

May I be always amongst those who not only

hear but know thee,

who walk with rejoice in thee,

who take thee at thy word and find life there.

Keep me always longing

for a present salvation in Holy Spirit comforts

and rejoicings,

for spiritual graces and blessings

for help to value my duties as well as my privileges.

May I cherish simplicity and godly sincerity

of character.

Help me to be in reality before thee

as in appearance I am before men,

to be religious before I profess religion,

to leave the world before I enter the church,

to set my affections on things above,

to shun forbidden follies and vanities,

to be a dispenser as well as a partaker of grace,

to be prepared to bear evil as well as to do good.

O God, make me worthy of this calling,

that the name of Jesus may be glorified in me

and I in him.”
