Prayer of the Day: Lord our strength, the battle of good and evil rages within us and around us, and our ancient foe tempts us with his crafty deceits and empty promises. Keep us steadfast in your Word, and when we fall, raise us up again and restore us through your Son, Jesus Christ our Lord, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and forever. Amen.
