Mercy - A Prayer For a Sabbath Eve

Torrin, Isle of Skye, Scotland

O holy God, make me such a creature as thou canst
take pleasure in,
and such a being that I can take pleasure in thee.
May I consent to and delight in thy law
after the inner man,
Never complain over the strictness of thy demands,
but mourn over my want of conformity to them;
never question thy commandments,
but esteem them to be right.
By thy Sprit within me
may my practice spring from principle, and
my disposition be comfortable with duty.

From The Valley of Vision, pg. 171
