Prayer for Our Day

The haughty spirits, Lord, restrain
Who o'er Thy Church with might would reign
And always set forth something new
Designed to change Thy doctrine true.

And since the cause and glory, Lord,
Are Thine, not ours, to us afford
Thy help and strength and constancy.
With all our hearts we trust in Thee.

for us three year types, this Sunday we hear Jesus comfort us with His words: "I will not leave you as orphans" (John 14:18). His word is more sure, more certain and more enduring than the words from St. Louis: "This is not your grandfather's church"
