Rejoice always, pray without ceasing, give thanks in all circumstances; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you.

"God of my forefathers, I cry unto Three.  Thou hast been the refuge of good and wise men in every generation.  Through all the ages Thou hast been the Lord and giver of life, the source of all knowledge,  the fountain of all goodness.

The patriarchs trusted Thee and were not put to shame:
The prophets sought Thee and Thou didst commit Thy word to their lips:
The psalmists rejoiced in Thee and Thou wert present in their song:
The apostles waited upon Thee and they were filled with Thy Holy Spirit:
The martyrs called upon Thee and Thou wert with them in the midst of the flame:
This poor man cried, and the Lord heard him and saved him out of all his troubles.

Forbid it, Holy Lord, that I should fail to profit by these great memories of the ages that are gone by, or to enter into the glorious inheritance which Thou has prepared for me; through Jesus Christ my Lord. Amen.  ~John Baillie ~Diary of Private Prayer
