PRAYER: A Prayer For Contentment

A Prayer For Contentment

From The Whole Duty of Man 

O merciful God, thy wisdom is infinite to choose, and thy love forward to dispense good things to us: O let me always fully and entirely resign myself to thy disposal, have no desires of my own, but a perfect satisfaction in thy choice for me; that so, in whatsoever state I am, I may be therein content.

Lord, grant that I may never look with murmuring on my own condition, nor with envy on other men’s.  And, to that end, I beseech thee, purge my heart of all covetous affections.

Amen.

  1. A wonderful prayer. I wish every child and adult could read it. What suffering we could end.
