“Divine Support”, Puritan Prayer from The Valley of Vision (Living for God, Holiness, Hope in God)

Divine Support

Thou art the blessed God, happy in Thyself, source of happiness in Thy creatures,
my maker, benefactor, proprietor, upholder.

Thou hast produced and sustained me, supported and indulged me, saved and kept me;

Thou art in every situation able to meet my needs and miseries.

May I live by Thee, live for Thee, never be satisfied with my Christian progress but as I resemble Christ; and may conformity to His principles, temper, and conduct grow hourly in my life.

Let Thy unexampled love constrain me into holy obedience, and render my duty my delight.

If others deem my faith folly, my meekness infirmity, my zeal madness,
my hope delusion, my actions hypocrisy, may I rejoice to suffer for Thy name.

Keep me walking steadfastly towards the country of everlasting delights, that paradise-land
which is my true inheritance.

Support me by the strength of heaven that I may never turn back, or desire false pleasures that will disappear into nothing.

As I pursue my heavenly journey by Thy grace let me be known as a man with no aim but that of a burning desire for Thee, and the good and salvation of my fellow men.

In the Name of Jesus,
