We are very weak…

We are very weak…
by Spurgeon

Our Father, we are very weak. Worst of
all we are very wicked if left to ourselves,
and we soon fall a prey to the enemy.

Therefore help us.

We confess that sometimes in prayer when we
are nearest to You, at that very time some evil
thought comes in, some wicked desire.

Oh! what poor simpletons we are. Lord help us.
We feel as if we would now come closer to You
still and hide under the shadow of Your wings.
We wish to be lost in You Lord. We pray that You
may live in us, and not we live, but Christ live in
us and show Himself in us and through us.
