Each time you bow in prayer, let there first be an act of simple devotion.
Father, I am in Christ; I now Abide in Him.
Each time you have, amidst the bustle of duty, the opportunity of self-recollection, let its first involuntary act be.
I am still in Christ, Abiding in Him now.
Even when overtaken by sin, and the heart within is all disturbed and excited,
O let your first look upwards be with the words.
Father, I have sinned; and yet I come as one who is in Christ.
Father! here I am; I can take no other place; of God I am in Christ; I now Abide in Christ.
