evening prayer (6/5/2017)


My heart is not proud, Lord, my eyes are not haughty; I do not concern myself with great matters or things too wonderful for me. But I have calmed and quieted myself, I am like a weaned child with its mother; like a weaned child I am content. I have learned to be content whatever the circumstances. Thank You, Lord for teaching us that godliness with contentment is great gain. For we brought nothing into the world, and we can take nothing out of it. But if we have food and clothing, we will be content with that. I know what it is to be in need, and I know what it is to have plenty. By your grace I have learned the secret of being content in any and every situation, whether well fed or hungry, whether living in plenty or in want.  Thank You, Father that I can do all this through Him who gives me strength. In Jesus’ Name. Amen.

About Wolf, the Gatekeeper

My name is Wolf. I am a sojourner, refugee, immigrant, husband, father and grandfather; abundantly blessed and saved by grace; and still a sojourner. Read Hebrews 11:14-16.
