A Prayer to Remember

This prayer was in Dr. Denison’s post this morning and it bears sharing.

Scottish minister John Baillie prayed: “Let me remember that my mortal body is only the servant of my immortal soul. Let me remember how uncertain my hold is on my own physical life. Let me remember that here I have no continuing city, but only a place for a brief stay and a time for testing and training.

“Let me understand the vanity of what is time bound and the glory of the eternal. Let my world be centered not in myself, but in you.”

Amen!
