Here is the prayer Nancy prayed everyday in the year before birthing her newest book 'Holiness':Oh, God show me more of Your holiness.Show me more of my sinfulness.Help me to hate sin and to love righteousness as You do.Grant me a deeper conviction of sin and a more thorough spirit of repentance.And make me holy as You are holy.As she worked on this book and prayed this prayer, the Spirit of God worked on her. She writes, "I've had to face the fact that I am often more bothered by other's failures than by my own shortcomings."As she wrestled with how to communicate the message of holiness, God gently and graciously exposed unholiness in her own heart- "Things like lack of self-control in relation to my tongue, my reactions, and my eating and spending habits. I've had to admit that I love myself more than I love others, that I care too much about the impression I make on others and too little about pleasing God."(Nancy's humility is one of the things I love about her!)-Now may the God of peace Himself sanctify you completely; and may your whole spirit, soul, and body be preserved blameless at the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ. 1 Thes.5:23In His love, chanin
