• “It is not the place where we are, or the work that we do or cannot do that matters, it is something else. It is the fire within that burns and shines, whatever be our circumstances.” – Amy Carmichael

Prayers Ancient and Modern 07/02

O Heavenly Father, subdue in me whatever is contrary to Thy holy will. Grant that I may ever study to know Thy will, that I may know how to please Thee.

Grant, O God, that I may never run into those temptations, which in my prayers I desire to avoid.

Lord, never permit my trials to be above my strength—Amen.

Thomas Wilson (1663–1755).

O Lord, who delightest in mercy, preserve us, we beseech Thee, from the sin of harboring in our hearts hard thoughts of Thee. Conform us wholly to Thy merciful will; that whether we live we may live unto Thee, or whether we die we may die unto Thee. While we live, give us grace to show mercy: when we die, of Thy grace show us mercy—Amen.

Christina G. Rossetti.
