Pray to be like Christ. Ask the Father to reproduce in you the loveliness, the tenderness, the strength, the calmness under suffering, and the patient self-possession that characterized Christ.
God will give you your desire, and send fulness undreamt of —the fulness of love, and faith, and strength, and patience — into your inmost soul.*
*adapted from J. Hastings, The Great Texts of the Bible, Psalms XXIV-CXIX, p.347.
