seek his strength

seek the lord,
and his strength:
seek his face evermore.
{psalm 105:4}

o jesus christ, grow thou in me,
and all things else recede;
my heart be daily nearer thee,
from sin be daily freed.
make this poor self grow less and less,
be thou my life and aim;
oh, make me daily, through thy grace,
more worthy of thy name.
{j.c. lavater}

  1. Love this. What a lovely prayer, all round- and the very words I hold on my lips today (only said another way).
