To ponder and meditate on:
"Prayer breathes hope, and a prayer without hope is a sinful prayer." - St. John of Kronstadt
Spend some time today doing something you’re not confident you will succeed at. Pray for strength with the following prayer: Lord Jesus Christ, my God, You have said “Apart from me you can do nothing.” In faith I embrace your words, Lord, and I entreat your goodness. Help me to carry out the work I am about to begin, and bring it to completion. To you I give glory, Father, Son, and the Holy Spirit. Amen.
