Thursday Prayer

We would receive all at Thy hand. If it should be honor and glory, we could receive them at Thy hand; if it should be ridicule and insults, we would receive them at Thy hand. Oh let us be able to receive either the one or the other of these things with equal joy and gratitude; there is little difference between them, and for us there would be no difference if we thought only of the one decisive thing: that it comes from Thee. Amen.
