“O Father, it is indeed true that we cannot be strong by our own power. How can we stand before your might if you do not strengthen and comfort us? Therefore, dear Father, embrace us, accomplish your will in us, that we may be your kingdom to your praise and glory. But, dear Father, strengthen us in this life with your holy word. Give us our daily bread. Establish in our hearts your dear son Jesus Christ who is the true bread of heaven.”
