Prayer from Augustine

God of our life, there are days when the burdens we carry chafe our shoulders and weigh us down; when the road seems dreary and endless, the skies grey and threatening; when our lives have no music in them, and our hearts are lonely, and our souls have lost their courage. Flood the path with light, run our eyes to where the skies are full of promise; tune our hearts to brave music; give us the sense of comradeship with heroes and saints of every age; and so quicken our spirits that we may be able to encourage the souls of all who journey with us on the road of life, to Your honour and glory
Augustine (apparently, don' know where from)

Good advice. Luther's was to get together with friends and have a drink!

But behind all of these methods is a single tactic - to remind ourselves of the promises of God, despite the apparently contrary story our circumstances are telling us. This goes right back to Eden. "Hath God said...?"
