So much to say, and so little time. Instead of trying to do a recap of 2011 or even a recap of last week (though you might see them in the future!) I’d like to close out 2011 with this prayer for 2012 (thank-you, John Piper!).
Lord, grant that we will love Christ above all things. And may we spend our pilgrim life learning to love this world les and heaven more. Put us out of taste with the delicacies of the devil, and give us a liking for the solid joys of Christ. Guard us from the allurements of the lodging of this journey, and fix our eyes on the end. And so, Father, make us useful to this world, loving, helping, serving here, while leading people up to God.
In Jesus Name,
