A Prayer of Wonder

Why, O God, do You take such interest in me,
a mere man?

You don’t just see me,
You’re looking at me.

You don’t just hear me,
You’re listening to me.

You don’t just know me,
You delight in me.

May I become as in love with You,
As You are with me.

No man is a fool who gives up what he cannot keep to gain what he cannot lose.

Jim Elliot

A Prayer for a New Day

Speak, Lord, for your servant is listening.

Incline my heart to your words,

and let your speech come upon me as dew upon the grass.

– Thomas á Kempis

A Prayer for a New Day

O God, I have tasted Thy goodness,
and it has both satisfied me and made me thirsty for more.

I am painfully conscious of my need for further grace.
I am ashamed of my lack of desire.

O God, the Triune God, I want to want Thee;
I long to be filled with longing;
I thirst to be made more thirsty still.

– A.W. Tozer

The call of Jesus to believe the good news of the impending kingdom leads at once to the call to “Follow me.” There can be no separation between believing and following, between faith and obedience.

Lesslie Newbigin

The true follower of Christ will not ask, “If I embrace this truth, what will it cost me?” Rather he will say, “This is truth. God help me to walk in it, let come what may!”

A.W. Tozer

A different world cannot be built by indifferent people.
