Rejoice always, pray without ceasing, give thanks in all circumstances; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you.


I've been reading through a little book of Martin Luther's prayers. The book is simply titled "Luther's Prayers."

I find that Martin Luther was so gifted in making personal what might seem to be just an abstract idea when read in the Bible. Romans 14:7 (ESV) says, "For none of us lives to himself, and none of us dies to himself." Luther gives us this prayer:

"O Jesus Christ, I live to you; I die to you; living or dying, I am yours. Romans 14:7. Amen."

Sometimes the simplest prayers say it best.
