Words of Faith: For Hope
by Rev. Mickey T. McCandless
Director, Church Connections and Spiritual Care
Give us, O Lord, steadfast hearts,
Which no unworthy thought can drag downward, unconquered hearts,
Which no tribulation can wear out, upright hearts,
Which no unworthy purpose may tempt aside.
Bestow upon us also, O Lord our God,
Understanding to know you,
Diligence to seek you, wisdom to find you, and a faithfulness that may finally embrace you;
Through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
(Saint Thomas, Italy, 13th Century, Alt.)
Do you have a prayer need for yourself or others?
You may send it to Rev. Mickey McCandless.
I will pray for your request and, unless asked not to,
I will share it with the rest of the community.
