For the Lord's Day

"I thank you, O God, for the relief and satisfaction of mind that come with the firm assurance that you govern the world; for the patience and resignation to your providence that are afforded as I reflect that even the tumultuous and irregular actions of the sinful are, nevertheless, under your direction, who are wise, good, and omnipotent, and have promised to make all things work together for the good of those who love you.”
Prayer of Susanna Wesley (1669 – 1742)
Mother of 19 children including John and Charles
