all-powerful grace

Standard

There is not a corruption we have within us, which Your grace is unable to subdue. There is not a cross or trial, or care, but Your grace will enable us to endure. It is Your all-powerful grace alone which, from hour to hour, averts from us temptations we could have no strength in ourselves to resist. Hold us up–and then alone we shall be safe. To You we look for everything.

prayer by John MacDuff 1885
