A Benediction for the 25th Day of April
Sanctifying the day by directing the heart to God
The story is told that one night Martin Luther, exhausted from a day of disputing with critics, preaching to his flock, and writing to defend his teachings, went to the window of his room and prayed, “Lord, there is so much work to do but I am tired. It is your world, you take care of it. I am going to bed.” He told his friends that he slept well. Knowing that God is faithful is a powerful sedative.
