Sitting in the Lord’s presence this morning I have two prayers and one thought from Jesus…
1. From 16th century priest Francois Fenelon: “Lord, I know not what I should ask of you. You know what I need. I simply present myself before you. I open my heart to you. Behold my needs which I know not myself. Smite, or heal; drepress me, or raise me up. I adore all your purposes without knowing them. I am silent. I offer myself in sacrifice. I yield myself to you. I would have no other desire than to accomplish your will. Teach me to pray. Pray yourself in me.
2. “O Lord, my heart is not proud
nor haughty my eyes.
I have not gone after things too great
nor marvels beyond me.
Truly I have set my soul
in silence and peace.
Like a weaned child who no longer cries for its milk
like a weaned child is my soul within me. … Psalm 131
3. “Unless you turn and become like little children, you will not enter into the Kingdom of Heaven.” … Jesus
