A Prayer to Begin the Day from Daily Prayer

WE pray not, O Lord, that our path may be smooth, but that thou wouldest give us faith to tread it without fear; not that we may always behold the heights, and measure the depths on either side, but that thy lamp may light up the way before our feet, so that we falter not; through Jesus Christ our Lord.

Daily Prayer, Eric Milner-White and G. W. Briggs, eds. (London: Penguin Books 1959 edition of the 1941 original)
