Old Lutheran Quote of the Day

Graciously provide for all sick, poor, widows, and orphans; keep all who are with child, all children, and nursing mothers; be the guide of all who travel by land or by water in the way of their calling; have mercy upon all who are in temptations, and on those who suffer persecution for Thy name's sake. Comfort them, O God, with Thy favor and finally relieve them according to Thy fatherly pleasure.—from the General Intercessions in Walther's Hymnal, p. 392.
