If His face is to be found on the pages of this great Book than it ought to be our most urgent undertaking.
I’ve extracted a small portion from “Christ the Word” published in the Valley of Vision — a collection of Puritan prayers that has become very precious to me.
In the words of Matthew Henry, “Let us pray without ceasing, that our eyes may be opened to behold this Light, that we may walk in it; and thus be made wise unto salvation, by faith in Jesus Christ.”
“If I oppose the Word I oppose my Lord
when he is most near.
If I receive the Word I receive my Lord
wherein he is nigh.
O thou who hast the hearts of all men
in thy hand,
form my heart according to thy Word,
according to the image of thy Son,
So shall Christ the Word, and his Word,
be my strength and comfort.”
