Commonplace Holiness Holiness woven into the fabric of life...

A Prayer for Today (John Baillie)

prayer&candleO thou

whose divine tenderness
ever outsoars the narrow loves and charities of earth,

grant us a kind and gentle heart towards all that live.

Let us not ruthlessly hurt any creature of thine.

Let us take thought also for the welfare of little children,
and those who are sick,
and the poor;

remembering that what we do unto the least of these his brethren
we do unto Christ our Lord. Amen.

— John Baillie (1886-1960).
