Anyone who is having troubles should pray. ... When a believing person prays, great things happen. -James 5:13,16 NCV

To be Oaks and Diamonds

Our Father, remove from us the sophistication of our age and the skepticism that has come, like frost, to blight our faith and to make it weak. Bring us back to a faith that makes men great and strong, a faith that enables us to love and to live, the faith by which we are triumphant, the faith by which alone we can walk with Thee.

We pray for a return of that simple faith, that old-fashioned faith, that made strong and great the homes of our ancestors who built this good land and who in building left us our heritage. In the strong name of Jesus, our Lord, we make this prayer.

When we long for life without difficulties, remind us that oaks grow strong in contrary winds and diamonds are made under pressure.

Amen.
... from the prayers of Peter Marshall, past Chaplain of the United States Senate
