John Baillie’s prayer for today

After reading from John Baillie’s book this morning, A Diary of Private Prayer; I am sharing part his daily devotion.

“Let me stand today for whatever is pure and true and just and good. . . let me put right before interest, let me put others before self, let me put the things of the spirit before the things of the body, let me put the attainment of noble ends above the enjoyment of present pleasures, let me put principle above reputation, let me put Thee before all else.

O Thou the reflection of whose transcendent glory did once appear unbroken in the face of Jesus Christ, give me to-day a heart like His – a brave heart, a true heart, a tender heart, a heart with great room in it, a heart fixed on Thyself; for His name’s sake. Amen” (pg. 61)

Blessings on your day & your weekend.
