Let a righteous man strike me – it is a kindness; let him rebuke me – it is oil on my head. My head will not refuse it.
Lord God, may I ever continue to be thankful for the times you have helped me, when I have asked for your compassion; may I recall the joy in which I received it, when it may be mine to have compassion and extend a helping hand to others. I pray that I may place my life where it will be stronger than adversity and controlled by sincerity and love. Amen.
