My friend, the artist from Texas, shares with me the words penned by John Newton in regards to prayer:
Thou art coming to a King,
Large petitions with thee bring,
For his grace and power are such,
None can ever ask too much!
All weekend, I think about my rather small petitions in light of God’s power and willingness. I think of my artist friend’s bold prayers. I think of the expectation and the joy. I think of that kind of supernatural living.
We approach the Lord of the Universe. There is nothing He cannot do. We cannot ask too much.
I enlarge my petitions and think about this amazing God.
Already, life feels different.
