Strength For Daily Needs

If thou draw out thy soul to the hungry, and satisfy the afflicted soul; then shall thy light rise in obscurity, and thy darkness be as the noonday; and the Lord shall guide thee continually.

[Isa 58:10-11 WEB]

If thou hast Yesterday thy duty done,

And thereby cleared firm footing for To-day,

Whatever clouds make dark To-morrow’s sun,

Thou shall not miss thy solitary way.

~ J. W. VON GOETHE ~

O Lord, who art our Guide even unto death, grant us, I pray Thee, grace to follow Thee whithersoever Thou goest. In little daily duties to which Thou callest us, bow down our wills to simple obedience, patience under pain or provocation, strict truthfulness of word and manner, humility, kindness; in great acts of duty or perfection, if Thou shouldest call us to them, uplift us to self-sacrifice, heroic courage, laying down of life for Thy truth’s sake, or for a brother. Amen.
