Breath of God

Earlier today on Bellshill Salvation Army Band’s Facebook page I shared some devotions. I’d like to share those devotions with you tonight.

Breathing is something that we all do without usually even thinking about it. How many breaths do you think an average person takes in one day? Having looked at a few websites, it seems the average number of breaths we take in a day is thought to be between 20,000 and 22,000. It’s amazing to think that we take so many breaths each day, yet most of us don’t even think about, or notice each breath we take.

Just as breathing is vital for us to live, so it is vital that God is part of our lives if we want live the life God has desired for us.

Edwin Hatch’s words ‘Breathe on me, breath of God’, embody the desire of every Christian to be at one with God. I therefore ask if you are ready and willing to pray these words today?

Breathe on me, breath of God,
Fill me with life anew,
That I may love what thou dost love
And do what thou wouldst do.

Breathe on me, Breath of God,
Until my heart is pure,
Until with Thee I will one will,
To do and to endure.

Breathe on me, Breath of God,
Till I am wholly Thine,
Until this earthly part of me
Glows with Thy fire divine.

Breathe on me, Breath of God,
So shall I never die,
But live with Thee the perfect life
Of Thine eternity.
