Prayer of the Optina Elders

Grant unto me, O Lord, that with peace of mind I may face all that this new day is to bring.


Grant unto me to dedicate myself completely to Thy Holy Will.


For every hour of this day, instruct and support me in all things.


Whatsoever tidings I may receive during the day, do Thou teach me to accept tranquilly, in the firm conviction that all eventualities fulfill Thy Holy Will.


Govern Thou my thoughts and feelings in all I do and say.


When things unforeseen occur , let me not forget that all cometh down from Thee.


Teach me to behave sincerely and rationally toward every member of my family, that I may bring confusion and sorrow to none.


Bestow upon me, my Lord, strength to endure the fatigue of the day, and to bear my part in all its passing events.


Guide Thou my will and teach me to pray, to believe, to hope, to suffer, to forgive, and to love.


Amen

    Hello! I understand this is sort of off-topic but I had to ask.
    Does managing a well-established blog such as yours require a lot of work?
    I am completely new to blogging but I do write in my journal everyday.
    I’d like to start a blog so I can easily share my own experience and feelings online. Please let me know if you have any kind of suggestions or tips for new aspiring bloggers. Appreciate it!
