Prayer for this Lord’s Day

from John Baillie’s A Diary of Private Prayer

O God my Creator and Redeemer, I may not go forth today except Thou dost accompany me with Thy blessing. Let not the vigor and freshness of the morning, or the glow of good health, or the present prosperity of my undertakings, deceive me into a false reliance upon my own strength. All these good gifts have come to me from Thee. They were Thine to give and they are Thine also to curtail. They are not mine to keep; I do but hold them in trust; and they in continued dependence upon Thee, the Giver, can they be worthily enjoyed.
