Give me a stout heart to bear my own burdens. Give me a willing heart to bear the burdens of others. Give me a believing heart to cast all burdens upon Thee, O Lord.

— John Baillie

The most superior John Baillie quotes you will be delighted to read

I thank Thee, O Lord, that Thou hast so set eternity within my heart that no earthly thing can ever satisfy me wholly.


The very fact that a man is thankful implies someone to be thankful to.


The evidence for Christian truth is not exhaustive, but it is sufficient.

Too often, Christianity has not been tried and found wanting - it has been found demanding, and not tried.


Faith is the proper name of religious experience.


I, a pilgrim of eternity, stand before Thee, O eternal One.

Let me not seek to deaden or destroy the desire for Thee that disturbs my heart. Let me rather yield myself to its constraint and go where it leads me. Make me wise to see all things today under the form of eternity, and make me brave to face all the changes in my life which such a vision may entail: through the grace of Christ my Saviour. Amen


O Holy Spirit of God, abide with us; inspire all our thoughts; pervade our imaginations; suggest all our decisions; order all our doings. Be with us in our silence and in our speech, in our haste and in our leisure, in company and in solitude, in the freshness of the morning and in the weariness of the evening; and give us grace at all times humbly to rejoice in Thy mysterious companionship.


Speak Thou in my words today, think in my thoughts, and work in all my deeds.


Cast down, O Lord, all the forces of cruelty and wrong.

Defeat all selfish and worldly-minded schemes, and prosper all that is conceived among us in the spirit of Christ and carried out to the honour of His blessed name. Amen.


Have I today done anything to fulfill the purpose for which Thou didst cause me to be born?


For the power Thou hast given me to lay hold of things unseen: For the strong sense I have that this is not my home:For my restless heart which nothing finite can satisfy: I give Thee thanks, O God. For the invasion of my soul by Thy Holy Spirit: For all human love and goodness that speak to me of Thee: For the fullness of Thy glory outpoured in Jesus Christ: I give Thee thanks, O God.
