A Puritan’s prayer of gratitude for God’s grace.
“O LORD GOD, teach me to know that grace precedes, accompanies and follows salvation; that it sustains the redeemed soul, that not one link of its chain can ever break. From Calvary’s cross wave upon wave of grace
-reaches me
-deals with my sin
-washes me clean
-renews my heart
-strengthens my will
-draws out my affection
-kindles a flame in my soul
-rules throughout my inner man
-consecrates my every thought, word and work,
and teaches me Thy immeasurable love.
Praise be to Thee for grace, and for the unspeakable gift of the LORD JESUS. Amen!”
