Charles Spurgeon's Disclaimer
This morning in reading about praying
according to God's will,
I read about a disclaimer that Charles Spurgeon
is said to have added to all his prayers.
Food for thought.
"Lord, if I have asked for anything
that is not according to Your mind,
I ask You to disregard it.
And if any wish that I have expressed to You
- even though it is the desire that burns in my
bosom above all other wishes -
is a wish that is not right in Your sight,
disregard it, my Father.
But in Your infinite love and compassion,
do something better for Your servant
than Your servant knows how to ask"
