Good News for Real People: Gospel for the Trapped - September 16, 2018

There are hard things
that I must do today, dear God.
Hard things, but I
should like to do them well,
and bravely as I can.
I ask for courage.
Let me not give up
when things go wrong,
but gladly try another way.
Dear God, be near me through the day
and help me do the hard things well.

~ Edith Kent Battle, “For Hard Things”
