Thou, Lord, alone, art all Thy children need and there is none beside; from Thee the streams of blessedness proceed; in Thee the blest abide. Fountain of life and all-abounding grace, our source, our center and our dwelling place! – Mme Guyon
Teach me all that You would have me learn today and give me the courage and strength to press on toward the goal for the upward call in Christ Jesus.. so that I may win the heavenly prize, which God, in Christ, is calling me to do – in Jesus name I pray, Amen.
In the steep common path of our calling, be it easy or uneasy to our flesh, be it bright or dark for us to follow, be Thou a shield to us from the wiles of the deceiver, from the arch-destroyer with his arrows pursuing us, and in each secret thought our minds get to weave – be Thou Thyself on our helm and at our sheet. – From Carmina Gadelica
