Give Me Strength to Live Another Day

Give me strength to live another day;

Let me not turn coward before its difficulties or prove recreant (which is another synonym for cowardly) 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.

This is a prayer that my friend shared with me months ago in our devotions.  She emailed it to me recently and it seems to mean more now than it did then.  Enjoy!
