Valley of Vision: God and Myself

If you haven’t gotten your hands on this collection of wonderful prayers you’re missing out on something ultra edifying to your faith. I’ve ordered a whole heap of them for future BC3 training days and SLE.

 

–ooo–

 

I have often loved darkness,
observed lying vanities,
forsaken thy given mercies,
trampled underfoot thy beloved Son,
mocked they providences,
flattered thee with my lips,
broken thy covenant.
It is of thy compassion that I am not consumed.

At the cross may I contemplate the evil of sin,
and abhor it,
look on him whom I pierced,
as one slain for me, and by me.
May I never despise his death by fearing
its efficacy for my salvation.
And whatever cross I am required to bear,
let me see him carrying a heavier.
