Saturday Synaxis

Teach me, O God, so to use all the circumstances of my life today that they may bring forth in me the fruits of holiness 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 danger as material for courage;
Let me use reproach as material for longsuffering;
Let me use praise as material for humility;
Let me use pleasures as material for temperance;
Let me use pains as material for endurance.
 
Amen.

- John C. Baillie
