Father of my Savior and of my soul,
please make me more like Jesus today and give me
the patience to endure the betrayal of friends,
the courage to stand up under trial,
the strength to take up my cross,
the humility to accept Your discipline,
the vision to see and share life amidst darkness and death,
the devotion to commit my spirit into Your hands.
In the Name of the One Who bids me come and die, Amen.
