Oh what a prayer

John Piper wrote a prayer that gave me great encouragement and brought me to a place of awesome humility. I would like to share it knowing it will do something for you because it glorifies The Lord 

"Yes, Lord, we do take heart 
from Your New Covenant promises.
They are the sweetest ones of all.
And from this side of the cross we see 
That they are all blood bought and secure.
Thank You, Father, for sending Jesus Christ
To be for us, by His blood, the yes and AMEN 
To all Your promises. He is now the great ground
Of our hope and joy. Don't let us despair
In the battle of this brief life.
In Jesus' name,
-John Piper "Life as a Vapor"
