A Prayer for Strength

My Lord God, through whom strength is made perfect in weakness, I pray to you, give me the strength I need.

You have said, that to your children who have no might, you will increase strength. I am weak. Bless me with a measure of strength, as may be sufficient for me.

When I am tempted by evil, deliver me, by granting me the power to overcome it. When my daily work is too hard for me, give me the strength to be able to do it.

If my burden oppresses me beyond my bearing, lighten my load, that my strength may be equal to it.

You have helped many, I beg you to help me.

Thank you my Lord.
