Prayer to remove spiritual self-deception

"Preserve me from a false esimate of the whole or a part of my character; may I pay regard to my principles as well as my conduct, my motives as well as my actions. Help me never to mistake the excitement of my passions for the renewing of the Holy Spirit, never to judge my religion by occasional impressions and impulses, but by my constant and prevailing disposition."

from Valley of Vision, pg 65.

  1. That's wonderful, but also so terrible in reminding me of my failings at doing just that.
