This is a favorite prayer of mine. Kendall Harmon has posted it this morning at TitusOneNine. It’s a very apt prayer, especially in interceding today for the orthodox Episcopalians at General Convention. May our Gracious Father indeed strengthen them in weakness to do valiantly in this spiritual battle.
O God, our Father, we are exceedingly frail, and indisposed to every virtuous and gallant undertaking: Strengthen our weakness, we beseech thee, that we may do valiantly in this spiritual war; help us against our own negligence and cowardice, and defend us from the treachery of our unfaithful hearts; for the sake of Jesus Christ our Lord.
–St. Augustine (354-430)
