Give Me Faith in Thee

June 10, 2012, 0 Comments

One of my favorite books on prayer is actually a book of prayers. It is the collection of morning and evening prayers written by John Baillie entitled “A Diary of Private Prayer” published in 1936. Here is a portion of the prayer for the evening of the 29th day.

O God, immortal, eternal, invisible, I remember with gladness and thanksgiving all that Thou has been to this world of men:

Companion  of the brave:

Upholder of the loyal:

Light of the wanderer:

Joy of the pilgrim:

Guide of the pioneer:

Helper of labouring men:

Refuge of the broken-hearted:

Deliverer of the oppressed:

Succour of the tempted

Strength of the victorious:

Ruler of rulers:

Friend of the poor:

Rescuer of the perishing:

Hope of the dying.

Give me faith now to believe that Thou canst be all in all to me, according to my need, if only I renounce all proud self-dependence and put my trust in Thee.
