Mound Visits, 4/25/19

Many times, the burden of responsibility can be very heavy. One of my former players recently shared with me a prayer that General MacArthur used to pray as he walked the deck at night before battle in the Pacific during WW ll:

“Give me, O Lord, that quietness of heart that makes the most of labor and of rest. Save me from passionate excitement, petulant fretfulness and idle fear. Teach me to be alert and wise in all responsibilities, without hurry and without neglect. When others censure, may I seek Thy Image in each fellow man, judging with charity as one shall be judged.” Then he would pray that “a merciful God would preserve each of those men on the morrow.”

“And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.”
(Philippians 4:7)
