Everything that God brings into our life...

Christ in Prayer
Everything that God brings into our life is directed to one purpose: that we might be conformed to the image of Christ. ...Erwin Lutzer image

Each time, before you intercede...

Evening, Sky, Cloud, Sunset, Sun, Beautiful, Landscape
"Beware in your prayers, above everything else, of limiting God, not only by unbelief, but by fancying that you know what He can do. Expect unexpected things, ‘above all that we ask or think’. Each time, before you intercede, be quiet first, and worship God in His glory. Think of what He can do, and how He delights to hear the prayers of His redeemed people. Think of your place and privilege in Christ, and expect great things!" ...Andrew Murray

O Lord, the house of my soul is narrow...

In, Ash Wednesday, Post, Ash, Repentance
O Lord,
The house of my soul is narrow;
enlarge it that you may enter in.
It is ruinous, O repair it!
It displeases Your sight.
I confess it, I know.
But who shall cleanse it,
to whom shall I cry but to you?
Cleanse me from my secret faults, O Lord,
and spare Your servant from strange sins.
–St. Augustine of Hippo
