After a long pause, a prayer (not that I haven’t been praying privately):
To do the work of God, he was able,
He read and daily studied his Bible;
Of Satan’s darts he was not afraid,
The Lord’s servant fervently prayed.
You are my light and my salvation. You give me confidence for my task. You secure my feet along the way. You are my victory.
For all the suffering, pain, and wrong,
today is yours, O Lord, and mine;
I will rejoice in prayer and song
and make my will with yours align.
