One Pilgrim’s Journey
My dear Abba Father,
I pray that thou wilt put into my heart such a spirit of praise that all shall see the glow on my face. I pray that thou wilt increase my faith, increase my confidence in thee, grow my ambition for thy honor, and help me to think thy thought after thee. For my children I pray the same blessings twofold.

1 Corinthians 4:9 . . . for we are made a spectacle unto the world, and to angels, and to men. 20 For the Kingdom of God is not in word, but in power.
I Corinthians 6:2 Do ye not know that the saints shall judge the world? .. . 3 . . . know ye not that we shall judge angels? 19 . . . What? Know ye not that your body is the temple of the Holy Ghost, which is in you, which ye have of God, and ye are not your own. 20 For ye are bought with a price: therefore glorify God in your body, and in your spirit, which are God’s.
My dear child, James,
Concerning thy children: I will give them a heart to know me, that I am the Lord: and they shall be my people, and I will be their God: for they shall return unto me with their whole heart. And I will create in them a clean heart and renew a right spirit within them. Happy is that people, that is in such a case: yea, happy is that people whose God is the Lord.
Hear and believe for this is the word of the Lord to thee,
With eternal love,
