God.You do not play in convincing me of sin, Satan did not play in tempting me to it, I do not play when I sink in deep mire,   for sin is no game, no toy, no bauble; Let me never forget the heinousness of sin lies   not so much in the nature of sin committed, as in the greatness of You, the One sinned against. When I am afraid of evils to come, comfort me,   By showing me that in myself I am a dying condemned wretch,   but that in Christ I am reconciled, made alive, and satisfied; that I am feeble and unable to do any good, But that in him, I can do all things and for your glory!  Thank you Father God. In Jesus I pray. Amen.
