"God's Cause" -A prayer from Valley of Vision -    "Only one life, twill soon be past, only what's done for Christ will last" 
 
SOVEREIGN GOD,
Thy cause, not my own, engages my heart,
   and I appeal to Thee with greatest freedom
   to set up Thy kingdom in every place where Satan reigns;
Glorify Thyself and I shall rejoice,
   for to bring honour to Thy name in my sole desire.
I adore Thee that Thou art God,
   and long that others should know it, feel it, and rejoice in it.
O that all men might love and praise Thee,
   that Thou mightest have all glory from the intelligent world!
Let sinners be brought to Thee for thy dear name!
To the eye of reason everything respecting
   the conversion of others is as dark as midnight,
But Thou canst accomplish great things;
   the cause is Thine,
   and it is to Thy glory that men should be saved.
Lord, use me as Thou wilt,
   do with me what Thou wilt;
   but, O, promote Thy cause,
   let Thy kingdom come,
   let Thy blessed interest be advanced in this world!
O do thou bring in great numbers to Jesus!
   let me see that glorious day,
   and give me to grasp for multitudes of souls;
   let me be willing to die to that end;
   and while I live let me labour for Thee
   to the utmost of my strength,
   spending time profitably in this work,
   both in health and in weakness.
It is Thy cause and kingdom I long for, not my own.
O, answer Thou my request!

    My Jesus, I beg You that I would become worthy enough to suffer for You wonderful name!

    "Then they left the presence of the council, rejoicing that they were counted worthy to suffer dishonor for the Name" Acts 5:41

    "Therefore I will boast all the more gladly of my weaknesses, so that the power of Christ may rest upon me. For the sake of Christ, then, I am content with weaknesses, insults, hardships, persecutions, and calamities. For when I  am weak, then I am stong." 2 Corinthians 12:9-10

    "There is creation and Creator, nothing more. And creation gets all its meaning and purpose from God." John Piper-don't waste your life 

    "Life is wasted when we do not live for the glory of God. And I mean ALL of life. It's all for His glory. That's why the Bible gets down to eatting and drinking. "Whether you eat, or drink, or whatsoever you do, do ALL TO THE GLORY OF GOD" We waste our lives when we do not weave God into our eatting and drinking and every other part by enjoying and displaying Him." 
    John Piper- don't waste your life


    "Let worship be the heart of mission's aim

    To see the nations recognize Your name
    'Til every tribe and tongue voices Your praise
    Send us out
    You should be the praise of every toungue
    You should be the joy of every heart
    But until the fullness of Your kingdom comes
    Until that final revelation dawns
    Send us out
