• “Dear soul, abandon yourself to the guidance of your divine Master and shrink from no surrender for which He may call…your light shall shine so brightly that men seeing, not you, but your good works, shall glorify, not you, but your Father which is in heaven.” – Hannah Whitall Smith

Prayers Ancient and Modern 11/16

O Merciful Lord God, O Lord most merciful, so replenish us with grace that, whatever else may be hidden from us, we may always, everywhere, and in all things, discern Thy mercy. For if being Truth Thou canst not deny Thyself, neither being Love canst Thou be other than Thyself. In which Thine unchangeableness, grant us quiet hearts, assurance of holy hope, peace, patient confidence of love. For Jesus Christ’s sake—Amen.

Christina G. Rossetti.

O Lord, who hast taught us that all our doings without charity are nothing worth, send Thy Holy Spirit and pour into our hearts that most excellent gift of charity, the very bond of peace and of all virtues, without which whosoever liveth is counted dead before Thee. Grant this for Thine only Son Jesus Christ’s sake—Amen.

Book of Common Prayer, A.D. 1549.

Verse of the Day

“O Death, where is your sting? O Hades, where is your victory?” The sting of death is sin, and the strength of sin is the law. But thanks be to God, who gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ. — 1 Corinthians 15:55-57 (NKJV)
