A Prayer For Today

This is the beginning of a new day.  The Infinite Intelligence has given me this day to use as I will.  I will use it for good because I am exchanging a day of my life for it!  When tomorrow comes, this day will be gone forever, leaving in its place something that I have traded for it.  In order that I shall rejoice in the price that I have paid for it, I want that something to be a gain, not a loss; good, not evil; success, not failure.

  9. Destroy thou them, O God; let them fall by their own counsels; cast them out in the multitude of their transgressions; for they have rebelled against thee.
  10. but let all those that put their trust in thee rejoice: let them ever shout for joy, because thou defendest them: let them also that love they name be joyful in thee.

  3. If I have rewarded evil unto him that was at peace with me; (yea, I have delivered him that without cause is mine enemy:)
