"Whoever wishes to come after me must deny himself, take up his cross, and follow me"

Loving and merciful God,

Thank you for allowing us to follow you and for calling us your beloved children. Lord, you know that we are not perfect and we cannot walk in this journey without you. Come to our help Lord, send us your Holy Spirit to be with us in our life that we delight in your commands and have the courage to put them into practice. May our pride never get in the way we live our (spiritual) life but by denying ourselves, may we be able to humble ourselves to carry our cross and follow your path of holiness and righteousness. We make our prayer, through Christ who calls his friends, he who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, One God, forever and ever.
