• “Pain is never permanent.” –Teresa of Avila

Prayers Ancient and Modern 02/05

O Lord, Who, in infinite wisdom and love, orderest all things for Thy children, order everything this day for me in Thy tender pity. Thou knowest my weakness, Who madest me; Thou knowest how my soul shrinks from all pain of soul. Lord, I know Thou wilt lay no greater burden on me than Thou canst help me to bear. Teach me to receive all things this day from Thee. Enable me to commend myself in all things to Thee; grant me in all things to please Thee; bring me through all things nearer unto Thee: bring me, day by day, nearer to Thyself, to life everlasting—Amen.

E.B. Pusey

O Lord, make us, we implore Thee, so to love Thee that Thou mayest be to us a Fire of Love, purifying and not destroying—Amen.

Christina Rossetti
