A Prayer by George MacDonald

George McDonald was a Scottish author, poet, and preacher who influenced C.S. Lewis, J.R.R. Tolkien, Madeleine L’Engle, and many others. The following is one of his sonnets from Diary of an Old Soul. Many Christians throughout the years have used this collection of daily poems as devotionals and prayers. This poem is a great reminder that we should solely depend upon God, the true source of life.

No sickness can come near to blast my health;
My life depends not upon any meat;
My bread comes not from any human tilth;
No wings will grow upon my changeless wealth;
Wrong cannot touch it, violence or deceit;
Thou art my life, my health, my bank, my barn-
And from all other gods thou plain dost warn.
