O my God, incline thine ear and hear; open thine eyes, and behold our desolations, and the city which is called by thy name: for we do not present our supplications before thee confiding in our righteousnesses, but in thy many mercies.

but Christ as a son over his own house, which house we are, if we hold fast the confidence and the glorious hope firmly until the end.
For we are made partakers of Christ, if we hold the beginning of our confidence steadfast unto the end;
But we are not of those who draw back unto perdition, but faithful unto the saving of the soul.
Blessed is the man that patiently endures temptation: for when he is tried, he shall receive the crown of life, which the Lord has promised to those that love him.
In which ye greatly rejoice, though now for a season, if need be, ye are afflicted in diverse temptations,
Therefore, having the loins of your understanding girded with temperance, wait perfectly in the grace that is presented unto you when Jesus, the Christ, is manifested unto you,
