A John Baillie prayer that I appreciate and share with you AO readers. — John
Teach me, O God, to use all the circumstances of my life today to nurture the fruits of the Spirit rather than the fruits of sin.
Let me use disappointment as material for patience
Let me use success as material for thankfulness
Let me use anxiety as material for perseverance
Let me use danger as material for courage
Let me use criticism as material for learning
Let me use praise as material for humility
Let me use pleasures as material for self-control
Let me use pain as material for endurance.
O Lord Jesus Christ, help me to think of You, who endured such opposition from sinners, so that I may not be weary and give up. Amen. (Hebrews 12.3).
