Faithful Father, thank you that you are my shield and my strength. Your word says that you give strength to the weary and increase the power of the weak. Please help me to experience your strength in the midst of my weakness. May Christ dwell in my heart through faith so that I, being rooted and grounded in love, may have the strength to know the love of Christ that surpasses knowledge. May I be filled with all the strength of you, my God. Through Jesus Christ, our Lord, Amen.
