amen

As you regular readers know, I’ve been working my way through The Valley of Vision, mining the gems from those old Puritan prayers, never failing to find them. This morning, as I read the prayer called “Repose”, these lines are my heart’s prayer:

Keep my wishes from growing into willings,
my willings from becoming fault-finding
with thy providences,
and have mercy on me.

Amen and amen and amen.
