A Prayer for Today

O God:
Give me strength to live another day;
Let me not turn coward before its difficulties or prove recreant to its duties;
Let me not lose faith in other people;
Keep me sweet and sound of heart, in spite of ingratitude, treachery, or meanness;
Preserve me from minding little stings or giving them;
Help me to keep my heart clean, and to live so honestly and fearlessly that no outward failure can dishearten me or take away the joy of conscious integrity;
Open wide the eyes of my soul that I may see good in all things;
Grant me this day some new vision of thy truth;
Inspire me with the spirit of joy and gladness;
and make me the cup of strength to suffering souls;
in the name of the strong Deliverer, our only Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. Amen.



 

Psalm 89

  Your love, O LORD, for ever will I sing; *
from age to age my mouth will proclaim your faithfulness.
  For I am persuaded that your love is established for ever; *
you have set your faithfulness firmly in the heavens.
  I have made a covenant with my chosen one; *
I have sworn an oath to David my servant:
  ‘I will establish your line for ever, *
and preserve your throne for all generations.'”
  The heavens bear witness to your wonders, O LORD, *
and to your faithfulness in the assembly of the holy ones;
  For who in the skies can be compared to the LORD? *
who is like the LORD among the gods?
  God is much to be feared in the council of the holy ones, *
great and terrible to all those round about him.
  Who is like you, LORD God of hosts? *
O mighty LORD, your faithfulness is all around you.
  You rule the raging of the sea *
and still the surging of its waves.
10   You have crushed Rahab of the deep with a deadly wound; *
you have scattered your enemies with your mighty arm.
11   Yours are the heavens; the earth also is yours; *
you laid the foundations of the world and all that is in it.
12   You have made the north and the south; *
Tabor and Hermon rejoice in your Name.
13   You have a mighty arm; *
strong is your hand and high is your right hand.
14   Righteousness and justice are the foundations of your throne; *
love and truth go before your face.
15   Happy are the people who know the festal shout! *
they walk, O LORD, in the light of your presence.
16   They rejoice daily in your Name; *
they are jubilant in your righteousness.
17   For you are the glory of their strength, *
and by your favor our might is exalted.
18   Truly, the LORD is our ruler; *
The Holy One of Israel is our King.
