And the Glory Goes to……..

“Now therefore, O our God, hear the prayer of Thy servant, and his supplications, and cause Thy face to shine upon Thy sanctuary that is desolate, for the Lord’s sake. O my God, incline Thine ear, and hear; open Thine eyes, and behold our desolations, and the city which is called by Thy name: for we do not present our supplications before Thee for our righteousnesses, but for Thy great mercies. O Lord, hear; O Lord, forgive; O Lord, hearken and do; defer not, for Thine own sake, O my God: for Thy city and Thy people are called by Thy name.” – Daniel 9:17-19

How wrong I have been in my moments with GOD!  Daniel reveals the true and only prayer Our Father answers and that is not a prayer for family, friends, self or our nation.  It is not for our good, but GOD’s GLORY! As I understand what Daniel is asking is “Not for ME, but for THEE!”  “I” must DIE for GOD’s GLORY! There is much power in the prayerful heart in total surrender.  To do so requires more courage than I have…without HIM. My source of that strength is found only in GOD’s Faithfulness. To be called by HIS name is my greatest Joy and I can’t but give HIM the Glory for whatever I do that is good and eternal, donchaknow. There’s a great old hymn that says it best.”To GOD be the Glory!” That’s what I get from My Box of Chocolates.    AMEN
