Help From On High...continued

Father, come and give rest to Your children. Take the helmet from our brow. Remove from us the weight of our heavy armor for a while. May we have perfect peace and be at rest. Oh, help us now, we pray. As You have already washed Your people in the fountain filled with blood and they are clean, now wash us from defilement in the water. With the basin and the pitcher, O Master, wash our feet again. Your cleansing will greatly refresh us. It will prepare us for innermost fellowship with You. For this reason, the priests washed themselves before they went into the Holy Place. (Charles Spurgeon, Prayer)
