Help us, Lord, to remember that religion is not to be confined to the church, or closet, nor exercised only in prayer and meditation, but that everywhere we are in thy presence. So may our every word and action have a moral content. May all the happenings of our lives prove useful to us. May all things instruct and afford us an opportunity of exercising some virtue and daily learning and growing toward thy likeness. Amen.

(Adapted from Susanna Wesley, England, 18th cent.)
