He Has Risen!

  |   Christian Parenting, Curriculum, Personal Growth   |   No comment

In remembrance of Easter, I am posting a prayer from the Valley of Vision: a Collection of Puritan Prayers & Devotions.  These uplifting and theologically sound selections were gathered  from among the works of John Bunyan, Isaac Watts, David Brainerd, Charles Haddon Spurgeon and many others.  They never cease to move and inspire me.  I recommend this book for individual and corporate worship! Additionally, it would also be a wonderful primary source addition to your studies of the Puritans during the Colonial period, especially for high school students.


Thou hast given me a Saviour,

produce in me a faith to live by Him,

to make Him all my desire,

all my hope,

all my glory.

May I enter Him as my refuge,

build on Him as my foundation,

walk in Him as my way,

follow Him as my guide,

conform to Him as my example,

receive His instructions as my prophet,

rely on His intercession as my high priest,

obey Him as my king.

May I never be ashamed of Him or His words,

but joyfully bear His reproach,

never displease Him by unholy or imprudent conduct,

never count it a glory if I take it patiently when buffeted for a fault,

never make the multitude my model,

never delay when Thy Word invites me to advance.

May Thy dear Son preserve me from this present evil world,

so that its smiles never allure,

nor its frowns terrify,

nor its vices defile,

nor its errors delude me.

May I feel that I am a stranger and a pilgrim on earth,

declaring plainly that I seek a country,

my title to it becoming daily more clear,

my meetness for it more perfect,

my foretastes of it more abundant;

and whatsoever I do may it be done in the Saviour’s name.


He has risen indeed!

    Thanks, Jimmie ~ I love Valley of Vision as well; I’m continually amazed at the depth of those Puritan prayers. Thanks for commenting! I hope you and your family had a blessed Easter! (BTW, what is the time difference from EST and where you are in China?)

    I adore Valley of Vision. It’s been such a great way to begin my devotional times and get me focused on the right things.

Tired of the tears (theirs and yours)?
