Heavenly God!

John 1:50 - 51 Jesus answered and said unto him, Because I said unto thee, I saw thee under the fig tree, believest thou? thou shalt see greater things than these. And he saith unto him, Verily, verily, I say unto you, Hereafter ye shall see heaven open, and the angels of God ascending and descending upon the Son of man.

John 21:15 So when they had dined, Jesus saith to Simon Peter, Simon, son of Jonas, lovest thou me more than these? He saith unto him, Yea, Lord; thou knowest that I love thee. He saith unto him, Feed my lambs.

Merciful Lord:

† James 4:10 Humble yourselves in the sight of the Lord, and he shall lift you up.

I am crying to you to cleanse me now, so let me not doubt your power to do so. While crying, O wretched man that I am, who shall deliver me from the body of this

The reason you wear a girdle, or sash of gold, is because you stand ever ready for service. Right now, in front of the eternal throne, you exercise a holy ministry as a priest, like Aaron, girt about with the curious girdle of the ephod (Exodus 28:8). You are our interceding High Priest. Thank you for ever fulfilling your office of love for us by praying! Lord, help us by your Spirit to follow that example and be girt around our hearts with prayer, interceding for those we know who are unsaved. Your belt is never loose, as if your office were ended. You diligently carry

Teach me to begin the praise music of heaven down here. Grant me grace to have many rehearsals as I move forward in your Eternal Purpose with others. I do not want to bring you blessing just because you feed me, and I receive so many wonderful mercies at your hand. No, I want to learn to praise you even when I am under the rod, and even when my heart is heavy with grief. Help me rejoice in you even when the flocks are diminished and brought low. Lord teach me, even this next year, the real art of praise. Set my soul on fire, and like a censor full of frankincense, may my whole nature send out a

our cause to the Father, so let us diligently carry the lost to you. To do so is to put on the golden girdle, because to pray for souls is the superiority of all supplication. When we pray for the lost, and pray for your Eternal Purpose, we no longer cry out of the dust, but plead with authority based on promises in your word. You offer us an example. We must never take off our “fanny pack,” our duty belt, our tool belt of prayer. Today is no time to be lying on the couch, but bending the knee. It is the season of spiritual war. Let us first cinch-up the belt of truth, and then take the truth of the gospel to the lost. It is a golden belt, so it will be our best attire. And we desperately need it, because a heart not well-braced

Grant me the kiss of forgiveness to close this winter. Help me praise, for you are faithful and just to forgive us our sin, if I have but claimed Jesus as my substitute and rest in him.

“Oh,” says one, “I live in the spirit of prayer, and therefore I do not need times
and seasons for prayer.” And do you think that Christ did not live in the spirit of
prayer? Yet He had to have his special time and place to pray. Do not fall under the
injurious notion that because your spirit cries to God in prayer all day long, therefore
there must not be some season for more immediately coming into God’s presence. If
you imagine this, I am afraid that it will prove a snare to your feet. The Lord Jesus
Christ, who knew better than you do that the main thing is the spirit of prayer rather
than the act of prayer, yet Himself retired into desert places to maintain the act and
exercise of prayer. Be spiritual. Be baptized into the spirit of prayer. But do not be
deceived by the enemy, who can steal a spirit away while we dream that we only
spiritualize it. We had better preserve the very bones of prayer—the posture, the
time, place—rather than let it all ooze away into an impalpable mental condition.
God keep us prayerful. He will do so if He makes us like His dear Son.
