Anglican Patrimony: A Prayer of Person who is Sick (BCP 1979 USA)

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.
