A Good Prayer for Those Who Preach
Steady me to do the full stint of work as well as I can; and when that is done, stop me; pay what wages Thou wilt, and help me to say, from a quiet heart, a grateful Amen.
-- Henry Van Dyke, Presbyterian pastor, author, and composer of "Joyful, Joyful We Adore Thee".
I love the way Van Dyke embraced both ministry responsibilities and an appreciation for the outdoors. His delightful little book, Fisherman's Luck, is one of my favorites.
