Lord, the Lord whose ways are right, keep us in Thy mercy from lip-service and empty forms; from having a name that live, but being dead. Help us to worship Thee by righteous deeds and lives of holiness; that our prayer also may be set forth in Thy sight as the incense, and the lifting up of our hands be as an evening sacrifice—Amen.
Christina G. Rossetti
Kindle in us the Fire of Thy Love; help Thou our weakness, that, strengthened in Thee and by Thee, we may take heed by good works to make our calling sure. Whatsoever our hand findeth to do, may we straightway do it, with the desire to please Thee only, and then be Thou our exceeding great Reward—Amen.
Paradise for the Christian Soul
