Beloved, help me to be an authentic Christian, Your true follower and a fruitful member of the Curch that You founded with Peter as the Rock, the visible head. If I live the life of a true disciple then I will be an effective witness to the truth. Pour out Your Holy Spirit O Lord to help all of us who wish to follow You who are the Way, the Truth and the Life. Amen.

To know You Beloved, to trust You to believe in Your words, to obey Your commandments. To walk in the light of the truth that You have revealed. To be submissive and humble - willing and ready to serve. To know oneself and that all that we are is because of Your graciousness and goodness. To attribute all that is good in us to grace that You so willingly pour upon us and to acknowledge that when we fail and fall it is not because You were not willing to help us but because we are weak and we did not cling to You in our moments of weakness - this is peace and joy.
