"Father, glorify me in your own
presence with the glory that I had with you before the world existed"
"Glorify me" Only Jesus could
legitimately pray this prayer for He is eternally the Lord of Glory.
I wonder, do I ask for the glory that
belongs to Jesus alone? Oh, not out loud. I would never make this request aloud
where others might hear me, but when I insist that others listen to me,
recognize me, consult me, remember my contributions, give me "the honor
I'm due," am I not muttering this prayer?
