Lord Grant Us…

Theotokos with ChristLord grant us:

Health enough to make work a pleasure;

Wealth enough to support our needs and to help others;

Patience enough to toil until some good is accomplished;

Strength enough to battle with difficulties and overcome them;

Grace enough to confess our sins and forsake them;

Charity enough to work some good in our neighbor;

Love enough to make us helpful and useful to others;

Faith enough to make real the things of God;

Hope enough to remove all anxious fears concerning the future;

Lord, help us to find balance by placing You first in life;

Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.   Amen.
