Prayer Guide

Do not boast about tomorrow; for you do not know what a day may bring forth. [Prov 27:1 NET]

The busy world shoves angrily aside

The man who stands with arms akimbo set

Until occasion tells him what to do;

And he who waits to have his task marked out

Shall die and leave his errand unfulfilled.

~ James Russell Lowell ~

Awake, arise! the hour is late!

Angels are knocking at thy door!

They are in haste and cannot wait,

And once departed come no more.

~ Henry W. Longfellow ~

Gracious Father, grant that I may not tarry so long, that when I arrive I will hear, “Too late, too late, ye cannot enter now”; but may I be so persistent with every day that when I arrive I may be ready as well as on time. Amen.
