I had no idea that it was even possible to blog from my phone… so this post comes at you somewhere between Calgary and Medicine Hat, Alberta.
I’ve been slowly working through a book called “Praying with the Anabaptists.” Within it’s pages are some prayers written by some of the Anabaptists forefathers. Below is a beautiful prayer I would like to share.
Prayer of Walter of Stoelwijk
Merciful Father, look upon me with eyes of compassion…
for to you only… belongs praise and honour…
I commit soul and body into your divine and gracious keeping:
guide me, through Jesus Christ your dear Son,
into all things that are well and pleasing
to your divine Spirit…
Preserve us by your divine Word now and forever. Amen.
A prayer written from prison wherein he was tortured mercilessly. He was burned at the stake on March 24, 1541.
