The Awakened Sinner
[Each night of the Gathering, one of our team members is reading from The Valley of Vision which is a collection of Puritan prayers.]
O MY FORGETFUL SOUL,
A wake from thy wandering dream;
turn from chasing vanities,
look inward, forward, upward,
reflect upon thyself,
who and what thou art, why here,
what thou must soon be.
Thou art a creature of God,
formed and furnished by him,
lodged in a body like a shepherd in his tent;
Dost thou not desire to know God’s ways?
The rest of the prayer can be read here.
