The Lives of the Saints! (Thought for the day)

A feature of Tozer’s books was the prayers that he wrote and used:
“Father, I want to know You, but my coward heart fears to give up its toys. I cannot part with them without inward bleeding, and I do not try to hide from You the terror of the parting. I come trembling but I do come. Please root from my heart all those things that I have cherished so long and which have become a very part of my living self, so You may enter and dwell there without a rival. Then You shall make the place of Your feet glorious. Then shall my heart have no need for the sun to shine in it, for You Yourself will be the light of it, and there shall be no night there. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.”
“The Blessedness of Possessing Nothing.”  In ‘The Pursuit of God.’
