Give me an honest memory of mercy.
Forgive me for the pride of unremembered
gifts and callous thanklessness
Waken faith in my wavering soul
and give me strong confidence
in your solid promises.
Where past and future meet
make me humble and bold.
In Jesus' name
and for his sake,
Excerpt from "Life As A Vapor" by John Piper. This prayer was the conclusion of Chapter 8, "Endings Are For Gratitude, Beginnings Are For Faith" It is my prayer today.
