Lent Prayers: Richard Baxter
Filed under: Quotable, Lent 2007, Lent Prayers — Karen B.
Keep me O Lord, while I tarry on this earth, in a serious seeking after you, and in an affectionate walking with you, every day of my life; that when you come, I may be found not hiding my talent, nor serving the flesh, nor yet asleep with my lamp unfurnished, but waiting and longing for you.
— Richard Baxter 1615-1691
