…a prayer for friday in Lent (from Charles Spurgeon)

“Lord, help me to glorify You; I am poor, help me to glorify You by contentment; I am sick, help me to give You honour by patience; I have talents, help me to extol You by spending them for You; I have time, Lord, help me to redeem it, that I may serve You; I have a heart to feel, Lord, let that heart feel no love but Yours, and glow with no flame but afection for You; I have a head to think, Lord, help me to think of You and for You; You have put me in this world for something, Lord, show me what that is, and help me to work out my life-purpose: I cannot do much, but as the widow put in her two mites, which were all her living, so, Lord, I cast my time and eternity too into Your treasury; I am all Thine; take me, and enable me to glorify You now, in all that I say, in all that I do, and with all that I have.”   Charles H. Spurgeon

    Rich words from an oh so familiar author we all revere with such heart felt admiration and respect. Mr. Spurgeon always leads us to the Cross. Thanks for sharing this wonderful quote if his! -cin
