Above All I Desire...

When asked recently, "How can I pray for you?" this was my response: 

Above all, I desire an undeniable awareness of the witness of God's approval upon my life.

Draw Me Nearer

I was blessed to speak with my Mom, Lady Melba, on the phone today and as always, even in her own day threatened by feelings of depression, she said: "Son, if you meet depression, press onward." 

I know what Mom really meant! "If you feel you are far from the Lord, don't settle for that feeling of distance, desire to draw nearer to Him and He will draw nearer to you.

This song is an anthem of sorts of the encouraging words I am hoping this blog conveys to you today:

"Let Human Arrogance Vanish..." / Prayer

"Arrogance comes,
then comes shame,
But wisdom remains...
with humble people."
Proverbs 11:2 GW

Let us pray:

Lord, entrust us with divine humility. Let human arrogance vanish from our lips and our lives.

We cry out to You to purify us with Your innocent, spilt blood from all unholy pride, all-the-while, forming fully within us Your holy mind.

Dwell intimately within us. Let the beauty of Your holiness hold us fast in unending faith.

Let us focus on You, alone. Make every other unworthy distraction dim in comparison to Your countenance of splendor. Be our Vision forever and a day and today. 

In Your Name, King Jesus, we pray. 

"...and i wait." Psalm 5:3 GW
