Begin the day with God poem

Begin the day with God,
Kneel down to Him in prayer;
Lift up thy heart to His abode
And seek His love to share.

Open the Book of God
And read a portion there;
That it may hallow all thy thoughts
And sweeten all thy care.

Go through the day with God
Whate'er thy work may be;
Whether thou art at home or abroad,
He still is near to thee.

Converse in the mind with God;
Thy spirit heavenward raise.
Acknowledge every good bestowed
And offer grateful praise.

Conclude the day with God,
Thy sins to Him confess;
Trust in the Lord's atoning blood
And plead His righteousness.

Lie down at night with God,
Who gives His servants sleep;
And when thou tread'st the vale of death,
He will thee guard and keep.

The Bible teaches that women should cover their heads during worship as a sign of their submissiveness as representative of the Church beneath the loving hand of Jesus who is represented by the men. There is no teaching toward women covering their heads outside of church worship, though in ancient times, and even up into the 19th century women did cover their heads in public, but for a variety of reasons, not necessarily holiness. It is inward beauty God sees, not outward--we are to be peculiar from the inside out, not the outside in.

Pray without ceasing mean anything to you? Maybe you are feeling the conviction of the Holy Spirit and that's why you're so argumentative.
