O great I AM,
Fill my mind with elevation and grandeur at the thought
of a Being with whom one day is as a thousand years,
and a thousand years as one day—a mighty God, who,
amid the lapse of worlds, and the revolutions of empires,
feels no variableness—but is glorious in immortality.
May I rejoice that, while all creatures are . . .
You are the Rock of Ages—the Fountain of living waters.
Turn my heart . . .
from uncertainties of the present state,
to the eternal blessings I have in Christ.
Let me live a life of . . .
dependence on Yourself,
(a puritan prayer)
