Evening Prayer

Even when an army is deployed against me, I do not fear. Even when war is imminent, I remain confident. – Ps 27:3 NET


Soul, rule thyself; on passion, deed, desire,
Lay thou the laws of thy deliberate will.
Stand at thy chosen post, Faith’s sentinel:
Though Hell’s lost legions ring thee round with fire,
Learn to endure.

– Arthur Symonds.


The confidence in another man’s virtue is no slight evidence of a man’s own, and God willingly favors such a confidence.

– Montaigne.


Prayer

My Father, may I ever be kept in remembrance of my virtue, and may I be sensitive to its strength. As I go on my way, keep me within control of the impetuous desires of my nature, and in call of the duties and obligations of my daily life. Amen.
