This is a Daily Reading that helps me a little everyday.
I recently posted a DAY by DAY reading my Mom gave me years ago, that I read everyday. Here is the other one from Mom that helps me daily too and comes from the same source:
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.
It’s not easy to do all this everyday…because it is human nature to let emotions dictate our actions….but it is worth it to try.
