Another Peter Marshall Rambling

Peter Marshall’s prayers never cease to amaze and touch me.  I’m almost finished with the book as a devotional this year, but I know that I will pull it out and read it again and again soon.  Here’s another of the prayers that linger in my heart.



Wednesday, June 2, 1948


O Lord, let us never be afraid of a new idea or unreceptive to a new thought, lest we pull down the shades of our minds and exclude Thy holy light.  When confronted by mystery, help us to remember that we do not have to explain all we know or understand all we believe.  But give us the grace of humility and the spirit of the open mind, the courage to persist in face of difficulties, and a steady confidence in the power of truth.


Help us all to learn something this day, that we shall be wise at its close and more ready for our eternal home when we are one step nearer.  Through Jesus Christ our Lord.  Amen.


  1. I really, really love this prayer!!
