Happy Lord's Day!
"Seventh Day Evening: Future Blessing
DEVOTIONAL: The Valley of Vision
O LORD GOD,
There is no blessing we implore but thou art able to give, hast promised to give, hast given already to countless multitudes, all unworthy and guilty like ourselves;
Make us willing to receive the supply of our need from thy bounty.
To this end convince us of sin, soften our hard hearts, to bewail our folly, ingratitude, pride, unbelief, rebellion, corruption.
Through the law may we die to the law, then look with wonder, submission, delight, to the provision thou hast made for the glory of thy Name in the salvation of sinners.
Give us a hope that makes us not ashamed, a love that excites to holy obedience, a joy in thee that is our strength, a faith in thy Son who loved us and died for us.
May we persevere in duty when not fully conscious of thee, wait upon thee and keep thy way, be humble and earnest suppliants at thy feet, live continually as on the brink of eternity.
Let us be at thy disposal for the duties and events of life, submit our preferences to thy wisdom and will, resign our enjoyments if thou shouldest require it as our absolute Proprietor and best Friend.
In our unworthiness and provocations make us grateful for the means of grace and the ordinances of religion and teach us to profit by them more than we have done.
Help us to be in the Spirit on the Lord’s Day, to enter upon the sabbath mindful of its solemnities, duties, privileges, setting all things worldly aside while we worship thee.
May we know the blessedness of men whose strength is in thee, and in whose hearts are the highways to heaven."
