"Come to me, all you that are weary and are carrying heavy burdens, and I
will give you rest.  Take my yoke upon you, and learn from me; for I am
gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls.  For my
yoke is easy, and my burden is light."  ~Matthew 11:28-30

The way sometimes seems long and wary.  So many people today are weary.  The
weariness of others can often be shared by me.  The weary and the
heavy-laden, when they come to me, can be helped to find the rest that I
have found.  There is only one sure cure for world-weariness and that is
turning to spiritual things.  In order to help bring about the turning of
the weary world to God, I can dare to suffer, dare to conquer selfishness in
myself, and dare to be filled with spiritual peace in the face of all the
weariness of the world.

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

I pray that I may be a help to discouraged people.  I pray that I may have
the courage to help bring about what the weary world needs but does not know
how to get.

good day!
