Here is an excerpt from another one of those prayers:
Help me to be in reality before thee
as in appearance I am before men.
One day, God will make us as righteous, even more so, as we sometimes fool others into believing we are. Until that day, and even then, I will have to count on Christ's righteousness alone.
In the words of one of my favorite hymns, The Sands of Time are Sinking:
I stand upon His merit, I know no other stand,
Not even where Glory dwelleth in Emmanuel's land.
