Prayer Guide

Preach the message, be ready whether it is convenient or not, reprove, rebuke, exhort with complete patience and instruction.

[2 Tim 4:2 NET]

Favored of Heaven! O Genius! are they thine,

When round thy brow the wreaths of glory shine;

While rapture gazes on thy radiant way,

’Midst the bright realms of clear mental day?

No! sacred joys! ’tis yours to dwell enshrined,

Most fondly cherished, in the purest mind.

~ Felicia Hemans ~

Genius is intensity.

~ Honore Balzac ~

But what if I fail of my purpose here?

It is but to keep the nerves at strain,

To dry one’s eyes and laugh at a fall,

And, baffled, get up and begin again—

So the chase takes up one’s life, that’s all.

~ Robert Browning ~

My Lord,

My life makes me conscious of weakness, and my memory brings regret; forgive me for the lost strength I neglected to develop. In thy compassion encourage me to be more watchful of my power, that I may usefully increase it, and not willfully deplete it. May I learn the need of constancy in well-doing.

Amen.
