• “In all places and at all times, we can have that familiar friendship, we can have Him with us; and there may be through the day a constant interchange of private words, of little offerings, too small to have any name attached to them—by which the bonds of that familiar friendship grow closer and more real, until it comes to that special personal intimacy, which we call sanctity.” – Janet Erskine Stuart, 1857-1914

O God of burning altar fire by Amy Carmichael

  • O God of burning altar fire,
    O God of love’s consuming flame,
    Make pure the flame of our desire
    To win the lost to seek Thy Name.
  • There is no coldness, Lord, in Thee,
    Oh, keep us kindled lest we bring
    To our dear Lord of Calvary,
    Dead ashes for our offering.
  • Dead ashes, husk of corn for wheat
    Lord of our consecration vow,
    We gather round Thy wounded feet,
    We see the thorn about Thy brow.
  • Oh, by Thy cross and passion, Lord,
    Grant us this plea, this sovereign plea,
    Save us from choosing peace for sword,
    And give us souls to give to Thee.

Verse of the Day

For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, says the Lord, thoughts of peace and not of evil, to give you a future and a hope. Then you will call upon Me and go and pray to Me, and I will listen to you. And you will seek Me and find Me, when you search for Me with all your heart. — Jeremiah 29:11-13 (NKJV)
