Prayer Guide

Do not avenge yourselves, dear friends, but give place to God’s wrath, for it is written, “Vengeance is mine, I will repay,” says the Lord.

[Rom 12:19 NET]

Not he the threatening texts who deals

Is highest ’mong the preachers,

But he who feels the woes and weals

Of all God’s wandering creatures.

He doth good work whose heart can find

The spirit ’neath the letter;

Who makes his kind of happier mind,

Leaves wiser men and better.

Dear Bard and Brother! let who may

Against thy faults be railing,

(Though far, I pray, from us be they

That never had a failing!)

~ James Russell Lowell ~

Heavenly Father, I pray that I may not be so occupied in expressing my judgment of others, that I will forget to live in thy judgment myself. May I have the compassion for others that I hope to receive from thee. Amen.
