Our Father in heaven, save us from the time of trial, for we are prone to wander and lose our way.
Make us stronger in our faith and more willing
to wrestle with the angel of doubt.
Guide us into living and loving more fully according to your precepts.
Help us turn aside all vain ambitions and concentrate fully upon your
Word. Give us courage to make our hearts bigger, even if that makes them
bigger targets, for love is always the answer. Help us to persevere
through the difficulties of life, knowing that You are always with us.
Give us the sight to see hope amid darkness.
O Loving One, hear our prayers and grant your benediction and grace to those whose needs we now raise before You.
