Prayer of the Optina Elders for the coming day.
Lord, give me peace of mind to meet everything that the coming day brings me.
Let me completely surrender to Your holy will. For every hour of this day, instruct and support me in everything.
Whatever news I receive during the day, teach me to accept it with a calm soul and firm conviction that everything is Thy holy will. In all my words and deeds guide my thoughts and feelings. In all unforeseen cases, do not let me forget that everything is sent down by You.
Teach me to act directly and reasonably with each member of my family, without embarrassing or upsetting anyone. Lord, give me the strength to endure the fatigue of the coming day and all the events during the day. Guide my will and teach me to pray, believe, hope, endure, forgive and love. Amen.
