A Challenge and a Prayer for Aught Six.

Anyone out there wanna join me in reading through the Bible this year? I am going to be using Robert Murray M’Cheyne’s method for daily reading. If you want to find out what his method was, pick up a copy of For the Love of God by Carson. A spiritual mentor of mine highly recommends it, and I’m gonna give it a shot.

One of my New Year’s resolutions is prayer. Here’s one to start off aught six:

O Lord,
Length of days does not profit me
except the days are passed in thy presence,
in thy service, to thy glory.
Give me a grace that precedes, follows, guides,
sustainns, sanctifies, aids every hour,
that I may not be one moment apart from thee,
but may rely on thy Spirit
to supply every thought,
speak in every word,
direct every step,
prosper every work,
build up every mote of faith,
and give me a desire
to show forth thy praise;
testify thy love,
advance thy kingdom.
I launch my bark on the undnown waters
of this year,
with thee, O Father, as my harbour,
thee, O Son, at my helm,
thee O Holy Spirit, filling my sails.
Buide me to heaven with my loins girt,
my lamp burning,
my ear open to thy calls,
my heart full of love,
my soul free.
Give me thy grace to sanctify me,
thy comforts to cheer,
thy wisdom to teach,
thy right hand to guide,
thy consel to instruct,
thy law to judge,
thy presence to stabilize.
May thy fear be my awe,
thy triumphs my joy.
