Eternal God, You have always been and You will always exist. You are stability itself. We, however, are fragile. We are made of flesh that cannot last. We sweat and we fall. We strive to understand the great mysteries of creation. Our end is always before us, preoccupying us. Do not forget us. Hold us so that we do not fall. Make us strong in faith so that we do not waver. You are our stability. You are our assurance. You are the Alpha and the Omega, He who is and who was and who is to come, always. Amen.
