STILL SURROUNDED

STILL SURROUNDED

Let me now go forth, O Lord my God, to the work of another day, still surrounded by Thy wonderful lovingkindnesses, still pledged to Thy loyal service, still standing in Thy strength and not my own.
Let me today be a Christian not only in my words but also in my deeds.
Let me follow bravely in the footsteps of my Master, wherever they may lead.
Let me be hard and stern with myself.
Let there be no self-pity or self-indulgence in my life today.
Let my thinking be keen, my speech frank and open, and my action courageous and decisive.
Amen.
