This kind of attractive, comprehensive faith is the subject of a prayer I read this morning in The Valley of Vision - entitled by the compilers, 'True Religion'. The comprehensive sweep of its concerns over all aspects of life was what struck me.
Lord God Almighty,
May my heart be right with thee,
Afford me all the direction, defence, support, and consolation my journey hence requires,
Give me large abundance of the supply of the Spirit of Jesus,
Lord, I believe, help thou my unbelief and uncertainties.
How much of this religion would William Lamb have recognised? Isn't it something so much better?
