True Religion



I ask not to be enrolled amongst the earthly
    great and rich,
  but to be numbered with the spiritually blessed.
Make it my present, supreme, persevering concern
  to obtain those blessings which are
    spiritual in their nature,
    eternal in their continuance,
    satisfying in their possession.
Preserve me from a false estimate of the whole
  or a part of my character;
May I pay regard to
  my principles as well as my conduct,
  my motives as well as my actions.
Help me
  never to mistake the excitement of my passions
    for the renewing of the Holy Spirit,
  never to judge my religion by occasional
    impressions and impulses, but by my
      constant and prevailing disposition.
May my heart be right with thee,
  and my life as becometh the gospel.
May I maintain a supreme regard to another
    and better world,
  and feel and confess myself a stranger
    and a pilgrim here.
Afford me all the direction, defence, support,
  and consolation my journey hence requires,
  and grant me a mind stayed upon thee.
Give me large abundance of the supply of
    the Spirit of Jesus,
  that I may be prepared for every duty,
  love thee in all my mercies,
  submit to thee in every trial,
  trust thee when walking in darkness,
  have peace in thee amidst life’s changes.
Lord, I believe, help thou my unbelief
  and uncertainties.
