My Colossians Prayer

Dear Lord,

Please fill me with the knowledge of your will by giving me all the boundless resources of your Holy Spirit especially your wisdom and understanding :

So that I can live a life worthy of You
So that I can please You in every way:
So that I can bear the fruits of Your Holy Spirt in every thing I do
So that I can grow in knowing you more and more

Please enable me to have your strength and power to pass through any experience and endure it with courage. And to be patient!

Help me to continuously thank You as I go through these challenges of life by enabling me to see the bigger picture : that you have passed the exam of life on my behalf, regardless of my performance. I now have the privilege to share in all the blessings of your people living in light today and tomorrow.

Help me never to forget that you have rescued me from the power of darkness, and re-established me in the kingdom of your Beloved Son. A kingdom with no shadows! For it is by your Son alone that I have been redeemed and have had all my sins forgiven.

Amen!

(Colossians 1:9-14)

A Prayer of Anselm

Come now, little man, turn aside for a while from your daily employment. Escape for a moment from the tumult of your thoughts. Put aside your weighty cares. Let your burdensome distractions wait. Free yourself awhile for God and rest awhile in him.  Enter the inner chamber of your soul. Shut out everything except God and that which can help you in seeking him. And when you have shut the door, seek him.  Now, my whole heart, say to God, ‘I seek your face, Lord, it is your face I seek. ANSELM OF CANTERBURY

A Faith of Contradictions

I want a faith that can fully credit contradictions, and that can prove the darkest night to be perfectly light, and the greatest of trials to be perfectly right, and to be evidences of unbounded love. Yea, I want a faith that can fully rely upon a promise with a rational prospect of the promise being fulfilled...I thirst, pant and groan, for the faith of which Christ is the Author and Finisher. WILLIAM GADSBY  William Gadsby was a 19th Century  Particular Baptist who experienced acute sufferings in his home life which exerted a heavy burden on his faith and ministry. He ministered for 25 years while nursing his wife, who suffered with acute mental illness.  Gadsby died before his wife did and before she gave most encouraging signs of not having lost the faith she embraced as a girl, the faith Gadsby had been so confident that the Lord would preserve in her.  The strain for him, though, was at times unbearable, as her illness led her to erratic and destructive behaviour, including atta
