Prayer Guide

even for kings and all who are in authority, that we may lead a peaceful and quiet life in all godliness and dignity.

[1 Tim 2:2 NET]

O boundless self-contentment voiced

In flying air-born bubbles!

O joy that mocks our sad unrest,

And frowns our earth-born troubles!

The life that floods the happy fields

With song and light and color,

Will shape our lives to richer states

And heap our measures fuller.

~ C.P. Cranch ~

One may secure and preserve that repose in the turbulence of a great city—as Shakespeare surely found and preserved it in the London of the sixteenth century. For repose does not depend on external conditions; it depends on sound adjustment to tasks, opportunities, pleasures, and the general order of life.

~ Hamilton Mabie ~


Gracious Father, help me to understand that peace cannot abide in misery, nor can it stay with every mood. May I be able to overcome the depression that may keep me in sadness and isolation, and have delight in the gladness of friends, and live in the peace of strong resolutions. Amen.
