Prayer for Wednesday, July 27.

O God help me to be good today even though I feel good.
While Man's desires and aspirations stir,
He cannot choose but err.
From Goethe's Faust where The Lord is speaking to Mephistopheles.

When I feel good, my desires and aspirations stir and I relate to the erring. I'm not as thoughtful when I'm feeling good. If I'm not careful, I carelessly tease others, make wrong decisions, and do not give other people proper consideration; all without any ill will toward anyone.
