PAUL FLEMMING.
Guide me, O Lord, in all the changes and varieties of the world; that in all things that shall happen, I may have an evenness and tranquillity of spirit; that my soul may be wholly resigned to Thy divinest will and pleasure, never murmuring at Thy gentle chastisements and fatherly correction. Amen.
JEREMY TAYLOR.
Thou art never at any time nearer to God than when under tribulation; which He permits for the purification and beautifying of thy soul.
