Anyone who is having troubles should pray. ... When a believing person prays, great things happen. -James 5:13,16 NCV

ETERNITY IN MY HEART



"I thank Thee, O Lord, that Thou hast so set eternity within my heart that no earthly thing can ever satisfy me wholly.  I thank Thee that every present joy is so mixed with sadness and unrest as to lead my mind upwards to the contemplations of a more perfect blessedness.  And above all I thank Thee for the sure hope and promise of an endless life which Thou hast given me in the glorious gospel of Jesus Christ my Lord.  Amen."

It's not our normal way of praying, but I find these "Old" prayers of a saintly man, John Baillie touch my deepest soul and minister to my spirit.  I hope this prayer will do the same for you.


Amen

  2. It is so true that nothing on earth can compare to life in the Lord. I pray that I will always look to him, and not to fleeting pleasures here.

    Blessings!
