A Short Prayer for Endurance

 

By your forty day’s fast in the desert and the three temptations of the devil which you endured and overcome.

Jesus have mercy upon us.

By the thirst, hunger, weariness and labours which you endured got our sakes

Jesus have mercy upon us.

V.         Let them that suffer according to the Will of God, commit the keeping of their souls to Him in well-doing, as unto a faithful Creator.

R.        Christ also suffered for us, leaving us an example that we should follow His steps.

O God Who resists the proud, but gives grace to the humble, grant unto us that we may humble ourselves under your mighty hand, that you may exalt us in your time.  Help us to be sober and vigilant, knowing that our adversary as a roaring lion walks about seeking whom he may devour. Give us grace to resist Him steadfast in the faith. O God of all grace Who has called us to your eternal glory in Christ, after we have suffered in this world, strengthen and perfect us in holiness. 

To you be all honour and glory for ever and ever.  Amen
