As I struggle onward


This is another day, O Lord. 

I know not what it will bring forth, 
but make me ready, Lord, for whatever it may be. 

If I am to stand up, help me to stand bravely. 

If I am to sit still, help me to sit quietly. 

If I am to lie low, help me to do it patiently. 

And if I am to do nothing, let me do it gallantly. 

Make these words more than words,
and give me the Spirit of Jesus. Amen.

The Book of Common Prayer, 1979 (USA)
