Ministry: 2006.

I'm a big Tozer fan. I have been reading "The Pursuit of God" again and at the end of each chapter he has a prayer. I know its kind of wordy and what not, but its challenging. This is my prayer and hope for '06.

God, I have tasted Thy goodness, and it has both satisfied me and made me thirsty for more. I am painfully conscious of my need of further grace. I am ashamed of my lack of desire. O God, the Triune God, I want to want Thee; I long to be filled with longing; I thirst to be made more thirsty still. Show me Thy glory, I pray Thee, that so I may know Thee indeed. Begin in mercy a new work of love within me. Say to my soul, "Rise up, any love, my fair one, and come away." Then give me grace to rise and follow Thee up from this misty lowland where I have wandered so long. In Jesus' Name, Amen.

-A.W. Tozer
