JUNE SIXTEENTH

The Lord Jehovah hath given me the tongue of them that are taught, that I may know how to sustain with words him that is weary.
—Isaiah 50. 4.

Gracious Father, keep within me that cheer and courage which never has a place for weary murmurings; and with peace make the hours of solitude profitable as they pass. Help me to seek those who are in need of sympathy and encouragement, that I may help them to have a tranquil life. Amen.
