In The Beginning

As 2018 begins I thought it an important reminder that before any of us were God in three Persons was. His plan for us has been eternal never changing and we need be reminded to acknowledge His distinct and glorious acts in that and most importantly the Saving Grace brought to all who would believe. The following prayer seemed and appropriate one for the New year.  – Mike

The Trinity

THREE IN ONE, ONE IN THREE, GOD OF MY SALVATION,

Heavenly Father, blessed Son, eternal Spirit,
I adore thee as one Being, one Essence, one God in three distinct Persons, for bringing sinners to thy knowledge and to thy kingdom.

O Father, thou hast loved me and sent Jesus to
redeem me;

O Jesus, thou hast loved me and assumed my
nature, shed thine own blood to wash away my sins,
wrought righteousness to cover my unworthiness;

O Holy Spirit, thou hast loved me and entered
my heart, implanted there eternal life, revealed to me the glories of Jesus.

Three Persons and one God, I bless and praise thee, for love so unmerited, so unspeakable, so wondrous, so mighty to save the lost and raise them to glory.

O Father, I thank thee that in fullness of grace thou hast given me to Jesus, to be his sheep, jewel, portion;

O Jesus, I thank thee that in fullness of grace thou hast accepted, espoused, bound me;

O Holy Spirit, I thank thee that in fullness of grace thou hast exhibited Jesus as my salvation, implanted faith within me, subdued my stubborn heart, made me one with him for ever.

O Father, thou art enthroned to hear my prayers,

O Jesus, thy hand is outstretched to take my
petitions,

O Holy Spirit, thou art willing to help my infirmities, to show me my need,
to supply words, to pray within me, to strengthen me that I faint not in
supplication.

O Triune God, who commandeth the universe, thou hast commanded me to ask for those things that concern thy kingdom and my soul.

Let me live and pray as one baptized into the
threefold Name.
