Prayers Ancient and Modern 11/24

O Lord, Creator of all things, be gracious, I entreat Thee, unto all Thy creatures. Give us all grace to serve Thee in our appointed place, rejoicing before Thee to Thy praise; each fulfilling the law under which Thou bringest him, each glorifying Thee according to the special excellence Thou bestowest—Amen.

Christina G. Rossetti.

Most great and glorious God, who hast appointed the rivers to hasten with a rapid motion to the sea, be graciously pleased, I most humbly beseech Thee, to make the stream of my will perpetually to flow a cheerful and impetuous course, bearing down pleasure, interest, afflictions, death, and all other obstacles and impediments whatsoever, before it, till it plunge itself joyfully into the unfathomable ocean of Thy divine will, for the sake of Thy beloved Son, my Saviour, Jesus Christ—Amen.

Charles How (1661–1745).

  • “We say, then, to anyone who is under trial, give Him time to steep the soul in His eternal truth. Go into the open air, look up into the depths of the sky, or out upon the wideness of the sea, or on the strength of the hills that is His also; or, if bound in the body, go forth in the spirit; spirit is not bound. Give Him time and, as surely as dawn follows night, there will break upon the heart a sense of certainty that cannot be shaken.” – Amy Carmichael
