Who is like the Lord? – Susanna Wesley

by Richard Long,

  It makes sense to feature a prayer by a great mother on Mother’s Day.  So here’s one from Susanna Wesley, mother of 19, including brothers Charles and John.

Who Is Like the Lord?

God You are one pure Essence!

Fulness, Perfection of Being!

Self Existent, Necessary, Infinite, Eternal!

Comprehending in Your most Blessed nature, all the perfection a Spirit is capable of!

Such as Power, Wisdom, Justice, Goodness, Truth, Holiness and Immutability.

You are whatever is Great or Good! Glory! Perfection in the Abstract!

Absolutely separated from all moral evil,

From whatever pollution can possibly defile a Spirit!

In a word You are Being itself!
