Spiritual readings – 14 March 2015

O God, give me today a strong and vivid sense that you are by my side. In a crowd or by myself, in business and leisure, in my sitting down and my rising, may I always be aware of your presence beside me. By your grace, O God, I will go nowhere today where you cannot come, nor seek anyone’s presence that would rob me of yours. By your grace I will let no thought enter my heart that might hinder my closeness with you, nor let any word come from my mouth that is not meant for your ear … O Lord, the desired of all nations, in the knowledge of your love and power there is salvation for all the peoples of the earth. Quickly bring the day when our earthly society shall become the kingdom of Christ.John Baillie  in A Diary of Private Prayer, updated and revised by Susanna Wrigh
