Almighty and ever-blessed God, I thank Thee for the love wherewith Thou dost follow me all the days of my life.
I thank Thee that Thou dost inform my mind with Thy divine truth and undergird my will with Thy divine grace.
I thank Thee for every evidence of Thy Spirit’s leading, and for all those little happenings which, though seeming at the time no more than chance, yet afterwards appear to me as part of Thy gracious plan for the education of my soul.
O let me not refuse Thy leading or quench this light which Thou hast kindled within me, but rather let me daily grow in grace and in the knowledge of Jesus Christ my Lord and Master.
