“I will praise the Lord who counsels me.”
~ Psalms 16:7 ~

“We’re not necessarily doubting that God will do the best for us, we are wondering how painful the best will turn out to be.”
~ C. S. Lewis ~

“Nothing is small or great in God’s sight; whatever He wills becomes great to us, however seemingly trifling, and if once the voice of conscience tells us that He requires anything of us, we have no right to measure its importance. On the other hand, whatever He would not have us do, however important we may think it, is as nought to us. How do you know what you may lose by neglecting this duty, which you think so trifling, or the blessing which its faithful performance may bring? Be sure that if you do your very best in that which is laid upon you daily, you will not be left without sufficient help when some weightier occasion arises. Give yourself to Him, trust Him, fix your eye upon Him, listen to His voice, and then go on bravely and cheerfully.”~ Jean Nicolas Grou ~

“My father, teach us not only thy will, but how to do it. Teach us the best way of doing the best think, lest we spoil the end by unworthy means.” ~ Rev. J. H. Jowett ~
“God will not look you over for medals, degrees or diplomas, but for scars.” ~ Elbert Hubbard ~

“True holiness consists in doing God’s will with a smile.” ~ Mother Teresa ~

“What lies behind us and what lies before us are tiny matters compared to what lies within us.” ~ Ralph Waldo Emerson ~

“Now it is you alone that I love,
you alone that I follow,
you alone that I seek,
you alone that I feel ready to serve,
because you alone rule justly.
It is to your authority alone that I want to submit.
Command me, I pray, to do whatever you will,
but heal and open my ears
that I may hear your voice.
Heal and open my eyes
that I may see your will.
Drive out from me all fickleness,
That I may acknowledge you alone.
Tell me where to look
that I may see you,
and I will place my hope in doing your will.
Amen.”
~ St. Augustine ~

“And when the earth shall claim your limbs,  then you shall truly dance.” ~ Kahil Gibran ~

“Let us go and wake up the universe…and sing His praises.” ~ Mariam Baouardy ~

“The will of God will never take you where the grace of God cannot protect you.”
“I know God will not give me anything I can’t handle. I just wish He didn’t trust me so much.” ~ Mother Teresa ~

“No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us. For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels or demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord.”  ~ Romans 8:37-39 ~

If you’d like a name added to the prayer list, please let me know but no anonymous requests, please. Names must be given each week; around the world, people are praying, one for another.
