Entries in Welch (1)

It's not a literary masterpiece

In a chapter about the fear of the Lord, Ed Welch, in his book When People are Big and God is Small, he ends with a prayer:

Lord, teach your church to fear you. Your grace is not always amazing to us. We are slow to hate our sin. We are more concerned with what someone thinks about our appearance than we are about reverential obedience before you. We want to delight in fear. We want to treasure it and give it to the next generation. Amen.

It isn't like the longer, flowing prayers and praises found in The Valley of Vision, but it's a very good prayer.

It is the prayer of my heart for the church and for myself.
