Prayer 477- for Perseverance
Almighty God, we put our trust in You: we come before You in faithfulness and joy. Cleanse our hearts of all wrong desires, and let our motives be pure and blameless in all we do. Help us when we are confronted by those who wish us ill, or who refuse to do what they should. Help us to act with justice, and balance righteousness with mercy. Let us always remember that You are beside us as a companion, behind us as a shield, and before us as a guide, O Christ. Lead us in the way we should go, and let us joyfully follow. Place your hand of restoration over those who are in anxiety, sorrow, or pain, especially those we now name.
