My Book of Uncommon Prayers: To Live a Noble Life

How can I make my ambition Your ambition?

Every now and then, unworldly inspiration and imagination penetrates t

his sin-chained  mind, this bone-bound spirit,

and I rejoice,

respond;

but just as quickly, flesh presses in—

pride presses in,

puffing me up, showing me what a wonderful thing I did for God.

Is there any hope to live a pure life,

a noble life,

when wriggling in skin and bone, a soul enslaved?

But to be free.
