Paul wrote: At my first defense no one came to my support, but all deserted me. May it not be counted against them! But the Lord stood by me and gave me strength. 2 Timothy 4:16–17
Lord of our helplessness, stand beside us in our times of trial; redeem our every weakness; and lend us enough of your strength to grow into our best selves. In Christ. Amen.
