"Lord, thank You for providing prayer as an antidote to fretfulness. When my heart is full of anxiety I can see only my limitations. I cannot find Your peace. But when my heart is full of thanksgiving I can see Your every provision; Your peace is unavoidable. So in response to Your generous invitation, I bring my thoughts, one by one, into captivity to the obedience of Your Son. I focus my heart and mind on the virtue of Jesus Christ. I cast all my cares upon You. I receive in return Your incomparable gift of peace. Thank You Lord Jesus. Amen." (Ps. 55:22, 2 Co. 10:5, 1Pet. 5:7)
"Begin at once; before you venture away from this quiet moment,
ask your King to take you wholly into his service, and place
all the hours of this day quite simply at his disposal,
and ask him to make and keep you ready to do just exactly what he appoints.
Never mind about tomorrow; one day at a time is enough.
Try it today, and see if it is not a day of strange, almost curious peace,
so sweet that you will be only too thankful when tomorrow
comes to ask him to take it also."
Francis Ridley Havergal (1836-1879)
