Prayer (Valley of Vision)

O great God,
I acknowledge and confess
that all good things come from You:
life, breath, happiness,
advancement, sight, touch,
hearing, goodness,
truth, and beauty.

In the spiritual world also
I am dependent entirely upon You.

Give me grace to know more of my need for grace.
Show me my sinfulness that I may willingly confess it.
Reveal to me my weakness that I may know my strength in You.
I thank You for any sign of repentance; give me more of it.
I need healing.
I need faith.

May I lay at Your feet these fruits grown in Your garden,
love You with a passion that can never cool,
believe in You with a confidence that never staggers,
hope in You with an expectation that can never be dim,
delight in You with a rejoicing that cannot be stifled,
glorify You with the highest of my powers,
burning, blazing, glowing, radiating, as from Your own glory.
