do nothing, gallantly

This is another day, O Lord. I know not what it will bring forth, but make me ready, Lord, for whatever it may be.

If I am to stand up, help me to stand bravely.

If I am to sit still, help me to sit quietly.

If I am to lie low, help me to do it patiently.

And if I am to do nothing, let me do it gallantly.

Make these words more than words, and give me the Spirit of Jesus. Amen.

(From Enriching our Worship)

When was the last time you thought you were supposed to do nothing? And when was the last time you tried to do that gallantly?
