DEAR GOD, I do not sail calm seas. I am driven by tempests of emotion. Help me to harness these to the purposes of your kingdom, for unharnessed they drive me to the rocks upon which both I and my relationship with you are broken. I surrender myself and my emotions to you. Amen.
– E. Stanley Jones, with commentary by Tom Albin
