But he said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.” Therefore I will boast all the more gladly of my weaknesses, so that the power of Christ may rest upon me. For the sake of Christ, then, I am content with weaknesses, insults, hardships, persecutions, and calamities. For when I am weak, then I am strong. (2 Corinthians 12:9-10 ESV)
Но Господь сказал мне: ‘довольно для тебя благодати Моей, ибо сила Моя совершается в немощи’. И потому я гораздо охотнее буду хвалиться своими немощами, чтобы обитала во мне сила Христова. Посему я благодушествую в немощах, в обидах, в нуждах, в гонениях, в притеснениях за Христа, ибо, когда я немощен, тогда силен. (2-е Коринфянам 12:9-10 Russian)
O LORD of hosts, our dear heavenly Father ~ hear our prayers on this new day that arrives with fresh tests of our faith and commitment to Christ our Lord. Grant us your courage and wisdom so that we will never waiver even briefly in our daily walk with our Savior who leads us and comforts us in our weakest moments. Thank you for all that you have done to provide this salvation. Bless the families of those everywhere who struggle with love for one another due to hardships and temptations. Help all fathers and mothers to love one another so that children will grow up with your pure love as a guide during the dark moments of this life. Defeat us when we think it best to follow the worldly model of being self-reliant. Help us to rely upon our powerful Christ who takes our burdens upon Himself. In the precious name of Jesus, Amen.
