Resist him, steadfast in the faith, knowing that the same sufferings are experienced by your brotherhood in the world. (1 Peter 5:9)
Abba, our Father and King, You are Holy and Almighty. We thank You, oh, Lord, for giving us the faith essential for our salvation. Because of the faith You gave us, we understood better Your loving-kindness. Because of faith, peace became abundant in us. Because of faith, we can do good deeds that we were incapable of doing before. Because of faith, we possessed our hope of glory and life everlasting. However, tribulations and temptations are always in our way, so we need to endure, especially with our enemy trying to deceive us. He is truly cunning and stronger than us, but You are with us. You will strengthen our faith to its perfection, so evil shall not conquer us. May You help our brothers and sisters more whose faith are still weak. May You use us who are stronger, so we can help them, and may we attain the perfection of our faith. We truly believe our prayers will be granted in Your name, Christ Jesus, our God and Savior. Amen.
