Donne: Keep us

Monday, July 13, 2020
    Then he fell on his knees and cried out, “Lord, do not hold this sin against them.” When he had said this, he fell asleep.
    —Acts 7:60 (NIV)
    Keep us, Lord, so awake in the duties of our callings, that we may sleep in Thy peace, and wake in Thy glory.
    ... John Donne (1573-1631), Works of John Donne, vol. V, London: John W. Parker, 1839, Sermon CXLVI, p. 623 (see the book)
    See also Acts 7:60; Ps. 3:5; 4:8; 132:3-5; Acts 6:7
Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, You alone grant the gift of peace.
