great things. great god.

"Let angels sing for
     sinners repenting,
     prodigals restored,
     backsliders reclaimed,
     Satan's captives released,
     blind eyes opened,
     broken hearts bound up,
     the despondent cheered,
     the self-righteous stripped,
     the formalist driven from a refuge of lies,
     the ignorant enlightened,
     and saints built up in their holy faith.
I ask great things of a great God."

- Valley of Vision, p.9 "The Great God"

What do you pray for?

Little things?
Simple things?
Meaningless things?

I hear myself praying for food. For a good day. For productivity. For energy. For happiness.

What of it?!

I now choose to ask great things of a great God.
