Spiritual Peace

Posted in prayers from history tagged , , , , at 5:00 am by blync77

Lord, our God, you know our sorrow better than we know it ourselves. You know how easily our fearful soul entangles itself with untimely and self-made cares. We pray, Lord: Let us clearly discern their inappropriateness and scorn them proudly, these busy self-made cares. But whatever care you do inflict upon us, let us receive it from your hand with humility, and give us the strength to bear it.   Amen.

Søren Kierkegaard (1813–1855)
