a prayer

Oh God, don't be an impersonal God. Be my personal Lord. Not a supreme being who has wound up the universe like a colossal clock and now the decades and centuries tick away and the events of humanity march past in ordered predestined sequence. Be my personal God who is moved with compassion when you see the needs of mankind. One who orders my small life as well as the destiny of nations. Who weeps when I weep and laughs when I laugh. I thank you that by your Spirit you have thus revealed yourself to me.
