The upright live forever, their reward is with the Lord, and the Most High has them in His care. This is why they receive, from the hands of the Lord, a royal crown, a splendid diadem. He will shelter them in His hand and His arm will be their shield.
My Beloved Jesus, only with Your help can this promise be fulfilled for me. I am weak and I need Your strength. Stay close by me my Lord. Help and strengthen me in times of temptation. Come to my aid when I call. Deliver me from evil and with Your help I shall be able to hold firm till the end.
My God, there is a work You have created me to do. Grant that by Your grace I may do it.
