Father, honor be to your Name. Enable us to throw off everything that hinders and the sin that so easily entangles. And let us run with perseverance the race You have marked out for us, fixing our eyes on Jesus… the pioneer and perfecter of our faith, who for the joy set before Him endured the cross, scorning its shame, and sat down at the right hand of the throne of God. Help us to consider Him who endured such opposition from sinners, so that we will not grow weary and lose heart. Show us how to stay true and strong in our faith. In Jesus’ Name. Amen.
A Prayer from Hebrews 12:1-3 New International Version
