God is life giving and guiding. In “Truth in Jesus,” a prayer from The Valley of Vision, Jesus is remembered as the way, the truth, and the life. In Him, we find the steps of wisdom that lead to heaven and an abundance of good on the way. Let this design remind you to turn to the life giving God for the wisdom you need for your every pilgrimage.
LIFE-GIVING GOD, Quicken me to call upon thy name, for my mind is ignorant, my thoughts vagrant, my affections earthly, my heart unbelieving, and only thy Spirit can help my infirmities. I approach thee as Father and Friend, my portion for ever, my exceeding joy, my strength of heart.
I believe in thee as the God of nature, the ordainer of providence, the sender of Jesus my Saviour. My guilty fears discourage an approach to thee, but I praise thee for the blessed news that Jesus reconciles thee to me.
May the truth that is in him illuminate in me all that is dark, establish in me all that is wavering, comfort in me all that is wretched, accomplish in me all that is of thy goodness, and glorify in me the name of Jesus. I pass through a vale of tears but bless thee for the opening gate of glory at its end.
Enable me to realize as mine the better, heavenly country. Prepare me for every part of my pilgrimage. Uphold my steps by thy Word. Let no iniquity dominate me.
Teach me that Christ cannot be the way if I am the end, that he cannot be Redeemer if I am my own saviour, that there can be no true union with him while the creature has my heart, that faith accepts him as Redeemer and Lord or not at all.
