“Many years ago, at the suggestion of a fellow musician I knew while in seminary in New York, I began to pray that God would show me a “WT” (a wondrous thing) just for me as I read his word daily. I claim Psalm 119:18, then read His word and wait for a wondrous thing to impress itself upon me in devotions. It really has changed my devotional life.”
“Open Thou mine eyes that I may behold wondrous things out of thy law.” Psalm 119:18
