Jeremiah Burroughs: Piercing Heaven – Puritan’s Prayers
Lord, you have given me a portion in the world. You have given me credit and a reputation among others.
But what is all this to me, if I am without Christ? If I do not have the one who gives grace to my soul, the one who is my all in all?
Lord, you have taught me this day that the distance between you and me is so great that without a mediator, I perish forever.
So whatever else you deny me, give me Jesus.
