Wednesday’s Prayer.
Almighty God,—
In Thy infinite mercy
Thou hast been pleased to accept me,
unworthy as I am,
to be Thy messenger.
I belong to an ancient race,
whom Thou hast kept alive unto this day,
while Thou hast allowed other nations
to decay and perish.
All this Thou hast done
for Thy particular purpose.
Thou hast willed that we should teach
all peoples at all times
to trust in Thee, O God,
in Thee alone.
On each one of us
Thou hast laid the duty
to preach Thy glorious name.
Not by force,
nor by words,
hast Thou bidden us make others believe.
Thou hast charged us
to let our lives declare Thy praise.
By the beauty and purity of our conduct,
by the truthfulness and earnestness of our hearts,
we have to bear witness that Thou art our God.
Oh, my Father,
make me always proud
that I belong to the House of Israel.
Let me neyer bring shame upon my people.
Train my mind and heart to serve thee
in truth and faithfulness,
that I may do Thy glorious work.
O God, Thou hast taught me from my youth;
and hitherto have I declared Thy glorious works.
Even when I am old and grey-headed, O God, forsake me not;
until I have showed Thy strength unto this generation,
and Thy power to every one that is to come. (Psalms 71:17-18)
