God’s Cause

I find strength in reading the following through and through when silence is all I could offer after praying for Sreysor Lem:  

Sovereign God,
Your cause, not my own, engages my heart,
and I appeal to you with greatest freedom
to set up your kingdom in every place where Satan reigns;

Glorify yourself and I shall rejoice,
for to bring honor to your name is my sole desire.
I adore you that you are God
and long that others should know it, feel it and rejoice in it.

O that all people might love and praise you;
that you might have all glory from the intelligent world!
Let sinners be brought to you for your dear name’s sake!
To the eye of reason everything concerning the conversion of others is as dark as midnight,
But you can accomplish great things;
the cause is yours and it is to your glory that people should be saved.

Lord, use me as you will, do with me what you will;
but, O, promote your cause,
let your kingdom come,
let your blessed interest be advanced in this world!

O do bring in great numbers to Jesus!
Let me see that glorious day and give me to grasp for multitudes of souls;
let me be willing to die to that end;
and while I live let me labor for you to the utmost of my strength,
spending time profitably in this work, both in health and in weakness.
It is your cause and kingdom I live for, not my own.

O, answer my request!

(The Valley of Vision Prayers)

  1. you may not have any idea how much reading your posts have impacted upon me. God is breaking my heart for the lost & the broken, and there are days when i am overwhelmed, when i am speechless, when i feel stuck & have no words to express how i feel. what a beautiful prayer this is! for the days when i have no words.

    • Hi Eleasa, when there is no uttering word on my tongue, it is the best minute, hour, or day(s) to let God speaks and I turn mute. I have been reading yours and I am sure when you can find the right word to speak, it’s the Word of God fueling your every single syllable and vowel of your thoughts. Been praying for you!
