Prayer of the Day: Give Us Grace

By the Web Editors 09-27-2013
Give us grace, O God, to dare to do the deed which we well know cries to be done. Let us not hesitate because of ease, or the words of [other's] mouths, or our own lives. Mighty causes are calling us--the freedom of women, the training of children, the putting down of hate and murder and poverty--all these and more. But they call with voices that mean work and sacrifice and death. Mercifully grant us, O God the spirit of esther, that we say: I will go unto the King and if I perish, I perish. Amen. -- W.E.B Du Bois
