Grant me, O Lord : LUSENET : encouragement : One Thread

This prayer-quote showed up today and spoke a good word to me. May it be your prayer also. For more of my Cuttings, see the "Of Me and Mine" page on Christians Only.

"O God, Who hast ordained that whatever is to be desired, should be sought by labor, and Who, by Thy blessing, bringest honest labor to good effect; look with mercy upon my studies and endeavors. Grant me, O Lord, to design only what is lawful and right, and afford me calmness of mind, and steadiness of purpose, that I may so do Thy will in this short life, as to obtain happiness in the world to come, for the sake of Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen." --Samuel Johnson (1709-1784)
