C

Lord, let me be a God besotted man. Let my trust be in you, then I will not be moved. It is not the old who are wise, but it is the breath of the Almighty that makes him understand. Let not my labors be counted as vanity. Unless you work, mine is for naught.
Lord, grant me contrition, not apathy; sight, not blindness; wisdom, not arrogance. When I see you as you are, I will praise you like I ought.
For the sake of your Son, leave me not alone. Give me your Spirit, that I may proclaim redemption. Let the nations see that the kingdom of God is not a matter of words but of power. Let them see your salvation and rejoice.

Perhaps if there were more of that intense distress for souls that leads to tears, we should more frequently see the results we desire. Sometimes it may be that while we are complaining of the hardness of the hearts of those we are seeking to benefit, the hardness of our own hearts, and our own feeble apprehension of the solemn reality of eternal things, may be the true cause of our want of success.

— J. Hudson Taylor
