One great request

Christolph Blumenhardt

Today's Devotional

Cast your burden upon the Lord, and he will sustain you. He will never allow the righteous to be shaken. Psalm 55:22 NASB.

Dear Father in heaven, you let us see and feel your great goodness toward us. Grant us the inner help to be victorious in the Savior, rejoicing to be by his side with faith and loyalty, and with the strength of soul that frees us from all burdens by laying them in your hands. Hear us as together we pray to you. All we ask and long for, all our concerns down to the very smallest, we lay in your hands in the one great request that your name be glorified on earth as it is in heaven. Amen.
