Take away all fear from my life
and give me a strong faith like Abraham,
our father in faith.
As I celebrate this Eucharist
I wait in joyful hope for the return of the Master.
Give me all I need each day:
do not put me to the test.
Help me to recognize that nothing in life
is more important than preparation for the final encounter.
Deliver me from all evil,
past, present and to come.
For the kingdom, the power,
and the glory are yours,
now and for ever.
