A Prayer for Today

Let me face what you send with the strength you supply;
When you make what I do effective, help me to ensure that your word is effective in my heart;
When you call me to go through the dark valley, do not let me persuade myself that I know a way around;
Help me not to refuse any opportunity to help other people that may come today, nor fall into any temptation that may lie in wait for me;
Do not let the sins of yesterday be repeated in my life today, or the life of today set any evil example to the life of tomorrow.

–John Baillie, A Diary of Private Prayer, 79
