We pray always for you, that our God would count you worthy of this calling, and fulfil all the good pleasure of His goodness, and the work of faith with power.—2 Thessalonians 1:11.
THOU settest us each task divine,
We bless that helping hand of Thine,
That strength by Thee bestowed.
Thou minglest in the glorious fight,
Thine own the cause! Thine own the might!
We serve the Living God.
THOMAS H. GILL.
EVERY hard effort generously faced, every sacrifice cheerfully submitted to, every word spoken under difficulties, raises those who speak or act or suffer to a higher level; endows them with a clearer sight of God; braces them with a will of more strength and freedom; warms them with a more generous and large and tender heart. HENRY P. LIDDON.
A man’s best desires are always the index and measure of his possibilities; and the most difficult duty that a man is capable of doing is the duty that above all he should do. CHARLES H. BRENT.
Under the laws of Providence, we have duties which are perilous. AUSTIN PHELPS.
