John Henry Newman

If I am sick
may my sickness serve you.
If I am sad or worried
may they too serve you in some way.
Lord, support me all day long
till the shadows lengthen,
the evening comes,
the busy world is hushed, 
the fever of life is over
and the work is done.   
Then grant me safe lodging,
holy rest
and peace at last. 

John Wesley on Prayer:
Whether we think of, or speak to God;
whether we act or suffer for Him
when we have no other object than His love
and the desire to please Him
then all is prayer.
Proceed then with much prayer and the way will be made plain.
