Ancient Prayers: Deeper

Lord Jesus, grant to me a deeper repentance, a horror of sin, a dread of its approach. Help me chastely to flee it and jealously to resolve that my heart shall be Yours alone. Give me a deeper trust, that I may lose myself to find myself in You, the ground of my rest, the […]

Something Old… Something New

When I was new in town I walked into a restaurant and ordered a dessert.  I was so taken by it I ordered every time I went… which in the early days was often.  In fact, it was so often they stopped asking me what I wanted and just brought it out. Then they changed […]

Ancient Prayers: Dangerous Prayer 01

(Pray this at your own risk…) No trial is so hard to bear as a sense of sin. If You should give me choice to live in pleasure and keep my sins, or to have them burnt away with trial, give me sanctified affliction. Deliver me from every evil habit, every accretion of former sins, […]

Like Jesus

So I’ve often wondered… what does it mean to look like Jesus…?  To live like Jesus…? To be like Jesus…? I’m tired of Christians who say, “If Jesus were alive today He wouldn’t go to church… He’d be hanging out with prostitutes and sinners in the bars.”  Mostly I think they say it because it […]

Ancient Prayers: Unanswered Prayer

(You may wish to read this through before praying it line by line …slowly) Christ Jesus I thank You that many of my prayers have been refused. I have asked amiss and do not have, I have prayed from lusts and been rejected, I have longed for Egypt and been given a wilderness. Please, continue […]
