Prayers Ancient and Modern 04/10

Almighty God, the fountain of Life, who hast ordained that Thy children may find life in the way of Thy commandment, and in the path of Thy service; we would humbly thank Thee, not alone for what is bright and fair in our lot, but for the difficulty, the trial, the darkness. We thank Thee for the doubts that perplex us,–the infirmities that opress us,–the sorrows that make us to faint and fear, for we know that Thou wilt answer the strong cry which these bring forth of our souls after light from Thee. Oh, grant that we may so endure as becometh Thy children,–that, doubting, we may not despair,–cast down, we may not be destroyed,–sorring, it may not be as those without hope; but that, receiving Thy discipline and preparation in the Spirit of Thy dear Son, we may make straight His path within out hearts. We ask it in His name, who is the Light of men–Amen.

Henry Wilder Foote (1838-1889)

Verse of the Day

For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, says the Lord, thoughts of peace and not of evil, to give you a future and a hope. Then you will call upon Me and go and pray to Me, and I will listen to you. And you will seek Me and find Me, when you search for Me with all your heart. — Jeremiah 29:11-13 (NKJV)
