Lenten Devotion 30 3.31.2020

Today I wanted to share with you an older prayer, written around 350 A.D. I pray that its wisdom holds true in your heart, as it did for Basil almost 1700 years ago.
 
A prayer of Basil of Caesarea
 
Steer the ship of my life, good Lord, to your quiet harbour, where I can be safe from the storms of sin and conflict. Show me the course I should take. Renew in me the gift of discernment, so that I can always see the right direction in which I should go. And give me the strength and the courage to choose the right course, even when the sea is rough and the waves are high, knowing that through enduring hardship and danger in your name we shall find comfort and peace.
