Trials and Pain: Moses' Prayer

So teach us to number our days, that we may gain a heart of wisdom.
--Psalm 90:12

A few days after these words appear in print the old year of our Lord
will have gone to join the long procession of years and centuries
that move on into the shadows of a past that can come no more.

In the year just gone the world has been writing history, not with
ink only but with blood and tears; not in the quiet of the study but
in violence, terror and death in city streets and along the borders
of nations; and other and milder but more significant history has
been written by incredible feats of power in sending man-made objects
out to circle the moon and the sun....

To each one fortunate enough to live out [this year], God will have
given 365 days broken into 8,760 hours. Of these hours, 2,920 will
have been spent in sleep, and about the same number at work. An
equal number has been given us to spend in reverent preparation for
the moment when days and years shall cease and time shall be no
more. What prayer could be more spiritually appropriate than that of
Moses, the man of God: "Teach us to number our days aright, that we
may gain a heart of wisdom" (Psalm 90:12).
The Warfare of the Spirit, pp. 145-147

"So teach us to number our days, that we may gain a heart of
wisdom. Amen"
