Remembering: Jim Elliot

"Father, make of me a crisis man. Bring those I contact to decision. Let me not be a milepost on a single road; make me a fork, that men must turn one way or another on facing Christ in me. "- Jim Elliot

53 years ago today (Jan. 8), Jim Elliot and four other missionaries were killed in Ecuador seeking to meet and evangelize the Waodani people.

I love his prayer. There is danger in that prayer; it's always dangerous to ask God to consume your life. What if God were to grant that request? My prayer tonight is for God to mold my heart into a heart that can honestly pray that prayer.
