The sacrifices of God are a broken spirit: a broken and a contrite heart, O God, You will not despise.
When it is the one ruling, never-ceasing desire of our hearts that God may be the beginning and end, the reason and motive, the rule and measure, of our doing or not doing, from morning to night; then everywhere, whether speaking or silent, whether inwardly or outwardly employed, we are equally offered up to the eternal Spirit, have our life in Him and from Him, and are united to Him by that Spirit of Prayer which is the comfort, the support, the strength and security of the soul, traveling, by the help of God, through the vanity of time into riches of eternity. Let us have no thought or care, but how to be wholly His devoted instruments; everywhere and in everything, His adoring, joyful and thankful servants.
