1 Samuel 2:12-36 --"Glimmers in the Darkness"

 

 From The Valley of Vision:

 

"Spiritus Sanctus"

 

O HOLY SPIRIT,

As the sun is full of light, the ocean full of water, Heaven full of glory,

     so may my heart be full of You.

 

Vain are all divine purposes of love and the redemption wrought by Jesus unless You work within,

     regenerating by Your power,

     giving me eyes to see Jesus,

     showing me the realities of the unseen world.

 

Give me Yourself without measure,

     as an unimpaired fountain,

     as inexhaustible riches.

 

I bewail my coldness, poverty, emptiness, imperfect vision, languid service, prayerless prayers, praiseless praises.

 

Don't allow me to grieve or resist You.

 

Come as power,

     to expel every rebel lust,

     to reign supreme and keep me Yours;

Come as teacher,

     leading me into all truth,

     filling me with all understanding;

Come as love,

     that I may adore the father, and love Him as my all;

Come as joy,

     to dwell in me, move in me, animate me;

Come as light,

     illuminating the Scripture,

     moulding me in its laws;

Come as sanctifier,

     body and soul wholly thine;

Come as helper,

     with strength to bless and keep,

     directing my every step;

Come as beautifier,

     bringing order out of confusion, loveliness out of chaos.

Magnify to me Your glory by being magnified in me, and make me redolent of Your fragrance.

 

This is a beautiful prayer as we anticipate what the Spirit might desire to teach us this week. See y'all Sunday!
