Nothing and nobody escapes you, O God. You know very well not only what is in our hearts and in our thoughts but you can also hear what we talk and discuss. Most of all, you know what we need.

Give us the grace to persevere in your words, Lord; to remain faithful in your precepts and promises.

Let us strive to bear pains, ready to sacrifice comforts because there are no shortcuts in this life.

Let us keep in our minds and our hearts that basic truth that “life is difficult”. In this world where everything seems readily available that many have disregarded your presence and even existence, teach us Lord to persevere, to be patient in waiting for your coming to fulfill us, to grant our prayers.

Teach us to value silence more than noise.

To surrender everything to you than be manipulative.

Let us find time to be alone with you and for you than be preoccupied with people and things.

Grant us the Holy Spirit, Lord, to fill us with your love and wisdom to always persevere in life for we hold on to your promise that

“…there will arise the sun of justice with its healing rays.”

Malachi 3:20

Amen.
