"O Thou who indwellest in our poor and shabby human life, lifting it now and then above the dominance of animal passion and greed, allowing it to shine with the borrowed lights of love and joy and peace, and making it a mirror of the beauties of a world unseen, grant that my part in the world's life today may not be to obscure the splendor of Thy presence but rather to make it more plainly visible to the eyes of my fellow men." --John Baillie
The above quote is from A Diary of Private Prayer by John Baillie. This is a book of morning and evening prayers that I have recently incorporated into my devotional life. I am loving it. I want to do my part--so I share it with you.
