“Oh! that God could be glorified, that Jesus might see the reward of his sufferings! Oh! that sinners might be saved, so that God might have new tongues to praise him, new hearts to love him! Oh! that sin were put an end to, that the holiness, righteousness, mercy, and power of God might be magnified!”
This is the way to pray; when thy prayers seek God’s glory, it is God’s glory to answer thy prayers.
C. H. Spurgeon
