Father, you know that I’m facing a hard few weeks. I’m sure that the choices I have taken recently have been the right ones. Keep me full of faith, and don’t let me regret choosing the path to which you have called me. I’ve told everyone I’ll be fine but I know that’s only in your strength, for I am nothing. Help me get my job done. Don’t ever let me be concerned about my legacy. Above all don’t let me for one moment lose site of you, or spend less time with you in what will undoubtedly be a busy time.
The apostles left the Sanhedrin, rejoicing because they had been counted worthy of suffering disgrace for the Name.
