Lord Jesus, You who are both perfect according to Your divinity and perfectly ordinary according to Your humanity, have pity on us. We will encounter failure, that is certain. We will trip, and even hurt ourselves. Do not forget that we are feeble and easily discouraged. Give us the grace to pass through the trials of life without bitterness and without discouragement. Help us to see the good that you have stored up for us, even in our failures. Fill us with joy, knowing that in You we have the ultimate victory. Glory be to Your name. Amen.
