A Prayer For the New Year 1918

O to walk continually, without a break, in Thy prescence and power, dear Lord! O that Thou mayest attain to Thy fullest purpose in me! O that I may know Thee in a very real way and the power of Thy resurrection! O to be led deeper and deeper into the depths there are in Thee! O that Thy glory may shine through all that is human and earthly in me that it may be manifested in the transfiguration! O that the abounding life of love pulsating from Thy very heart through this humble member of Thy body may be felt by others! O to be more sensitive to the displeasure of the Spirit when in my life He sees that which is not Christ! O that the Wind - the Spirit- may blow through every nook and corner of Thy temple that there may be life in circulation and that the inner atmosphere may be ever pure! O absolute, entire, complete surrender to Thy Word through the Spirit in actual experience that I may be used of Thee in ministering to others in the power of God! O to wait more upon Thee to understand the need in the lives of others from Thy point of view! O that in me Thy work may be translated to life!

" There Jesus said... Great is thy faith: be it unto thee even as thou wilt." Matt. 15:20
