Before I sleep tonight, I’m planning to “close the loop” for 2003 with listening to the invitation by Richard J. Foster to the journey of “becoming like Christ” again (oh! how we need to hear it again & again!)
But for now, I hear a “benediction” which started from this morning …
May you now, by the power of the Holy Spirit,
Receive the Spirit of prayer,
May it become, in the name of Jesus Christ,
The most precious occupation of your life.
And may the God of all peace strengthen you,
bless you, and give you joy. Amen.
What a fitting “blessing” for the last day of 2003 from one of my favorite author Richard J. Foster’s book – Prayer: Finding the Heart’s True Home! I pray this “blessing” – benediction will be upon all who read this blog …
