Give Me Courage

Columban Daily Prayer
November 14, 2023

Dear God, give me courage,
for perhaps I lack it more than anything else.

I need courage before men against their threats
and against their seductions.

I need courage to bear unkindness,
mockery, contradiction.

I need courage to fight against the devil,
against terrors and troubles, temptations,
attractions, darkness and false lights,
against tears, depression, and above all fear.

I need Your help, dear God.
Strengthen me with Your love and Your grace.

Console me with Your blessed presence
and grant me the courage to persevere
until I am with You forever in heaven.
