September 8 – Daily Strength for Daily Needs

Continue in prayer, and watch in the same with thanksgiving.–COL. iv. 2.
Watch ye, stand fast in the faith, quit you like men, be strong.–I COR. xvi. 13.

We kneel how weak, we rise how full of power. Why therefore should we do ourselves this wrong, Or others–that we are not always strong, That we are ever overborne with care, That we should ever weak or heartless be, Anxious or troubled, when with us is prayer, And joy and strength and courage are with Thee?
R. C. TRENCH.
It is impossible for us to make the duties of our lot minister to our sanctification without a habit of devout fellowship with God. This is the spring of all our life, and the strength of it. It is prayer, meditation, and converse with God, that refreshes, restores, and renews the temper of our minds, at all times, under all trials, after all conflicts with the world. By this contact with the world unseen we receive continual accesses of strength. As our day, so is our strength. Without this healing and refreshing of spirit, duties grow to be burdens, the events of life chafe our temper, employments lower the tone of our minds, and we become fretful, irritable, and impatient.
H. E. MANNING.
