IOUS prayer


I — Incline my heart to His testimonies (Psalm 119:36),

O — Open my eyes that I might behold the wonderful things in His Word (Psalm 119:8),

U — Unite my heart to fear His name (Psalm 86:11), and

S — Satisfy me in His steadfast love (Psalm 90:14).

Nothing but a miracle of grace can lead to the saving of any sinner."
