How often over the years have I been helped by John Baillie’s prayers! He passed away 60 years ago, but his prayer below seems strikingly meaningful today:
“Lord, I pray not only for myself, but for my family, friends and fellow humans. Father, guide all those today who face great decisions,
Who work for harmony between individuals and nations,
Who shape public opinion through writing and speaking, and lift up truth in a world of ignorance and wrong.
Lord, I think of those who have given up earthly comfort to benefit others. Let me not live for myself alone. Amen”
Coffee/tea thought: Take a moment to lift up this prayer for our hurting and broken world today.
