Passion Of Christ Strengthen Me


Friday Devotion

Passion of Christ, strengthen me!
Strengthen me under the pressure of temptation.
Strengthen me when principle is at stake.
Strengthen me to do Your Will, My God.
Strengthen me in moments of suffering,
in times of loneliness,
in periods of depression.
Strengthen me that I may never swerve from You, dear Christ,
nor weaken through human respect,
through a desire to be popular,
through hope of social distinction.
Strengthen me to accept my cross
and carry it generously to the end.
On the battlefield of life,
stand by me that I may never prove a traitor in the ranks.
Stand by me that I may not be dazzled
by the glitter and glow of the enemy camp.
