The Vision (2.19.16): Philip Henry's Prayer
Note: I shared this prayer Sunday before last at the close of the sermon on Membership in the Body of Christ (1 Corinthians 12):
Philip Henry, the father of the great commentator Matthew Henry, taught his children to pray these words of commitment:
I take God the Father to be my God;
I take God the Son to be My Saviour;
I take the Holy Ghost to be my Sanctifier;
I take the Word of God to be my rule;
I take the people of God to be my people;
And I do hereby dedicate and yield my whole self to the Lord:
And I do this deliberately, freely and forever.
May this also be our prayer.
Grace and peace, Pastor Jeff Riddle
