Prayer for Strength in Weakness

Lord Jesus Christ, King of Kings, 
You have power over life and death. 
You know what is secret and hidden, 
and neither our thoughts nor our 
feelings are concealed from You. 
Cure me of duplicity; I have done 
evil before You. Now my life declines 
from day to day and my sins increase. 
O Lord, God of souls and bodies, 
You know the extreme frailty of 
my soul and my flesh. 
Grant me strength in my weakness, 
O Lord, and sustain me in my misery. 
Give me a grateful soul that 
I may never cease to recall Your benefits, 
O Lord most bountiful. Be not mindful of my many sins, 
but forgive me all my misdeeds. 
O Lord, disdain not my prayer - 
the prayer of a wretched sinner; 
sustain me with Your grace until the end, 
that it may protect me as in the past. 
It is Your grace which has taught me wisdom; 
blessed are they who follow her ways, 
for they shall receive the crown of glory. 
In spite of my unworthiness, 
I praise You and I glorify You, O Lord, 
for Your mercy to me is without limit.
 You have been my help and my protection. 
May the name of Your majesty be praised forever. 
To you, our God, be glory.
