"By the tender mercy of our God, the dawn from on high will break upon us,
to give light to those who sit in darkness and in the shadow of death, to
guide our feet into the way of peace."  ~Luke 1:78

God can be our shield.  Then no problems of the world can harm us.
Between us and all scorn and indignity from others is our trust in God, like
a shining shield.  Nothing can then have the power to spoil our inward
peace. With this shield, we can attain this inward peace quickly, in our
surroundings as well as in our hearts.  With this inward peace, we do not
need to resent the person who troubles us. Instead, we can overcome the
resentment in our own mind which may have been aroused by that person.

.=: P R A Y E R   F O R   T H E   D A Y  :=.

I pray that I may strive for inward peace.  I pray that I may not be
seriously upset, no matter what happens around me.
