The following is a short prayer for courage, should you find yourself in the midst of sin and temptation. Perform the sign of the cross to remember your baptism, saying, "In the Name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit." Then pray this prayer while looking to Heaven.
Almighty and Benevolent God, I adjure you to save me now for I am perishing. This storm threatens to consume me, body and soul, and leave nothing left. Rise up against my enemy, O' God, and strengthen me in faith. Take this burden from me and bear it up yourself, for You Alone are able to carry it. I thank you for the salvation you have given me, and thank you that, through my baptism, you have carried me safely through the waters. I ask this help of you in the name of your dear son, Jesus Christ, who won my salvation on the Cross. Amen.
