CQOD: 01/11/06 -- Baillie: open to Thee

Christian Quotation of the Day

January 11, 2006
Commemoration of Mary Slessor, Missionary in West Africa, 1915
    Continue steadfastly in prayer, being watchful in it with thanksgiving. At the same time, pray also for us, that God may open to us a door for the word, to declare the mystery of Christ, on account of which I am in prison--that I may make it clear, which is how I ought to speak.
    -- Colossians 4:2-4 (ESV)

    Give me an open ear, O God, that I may hear Thy voice
        calling me to high endeavor.
    Give me an open mind, O God, a mind ready to receive and to welcome
        such new light of knowledge as it is Thy will to reveal to me.
    Give me open eyes, O God, eyes quick to discover
        Thine indwelling in the world which Thou hast made.
    Give me open hands, O God, hands ready to share with all who are in want
        the blessings with which Thou hast enriched my life.
    ... John Baillie (1886-1960)
