A PRAYER FOR TODAY

February 5, 2017

O God:

Give me strength to live another day;

Let me not turn coward before its difficulties

or prove recreant to its duties;

 

Let me not lose faith in other people;

Keep me sweet and sound of heart, in spite of

ingratitude, treachery, or meanness;

Preserve me from minding little stings or

giving them;

 

Help me to keep my heart clean, and to live so

honestly and fearlessly that no outward failure

can dishearten me or take away the joy of

conscious integrity;

 

Open wide the eyes of my soul that I may see

good in all things;

 

Grant me this day some new vision of thy truth;

Inspire me with the spirit of joy and gladness;

 

And make me the cup of strength to suffering

souls; in the name of the strong Deliverer,

our only Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.

Amen.

 

-Phillips Brooks
