In You, I have trusted; let me not be put to shame.
Nor let my enemies exult over me;
and let none who hope in You be put to shame. (Psalm 25: 1-3)
the resolve to run forth to meet Your Christ
with righteous deeds at His coming,
so that, gathered at His right hand,
they may be worthy to possess the heavenly Kingdom.
Through our Lord Jesus Christ, your Son,
who lives and reigns with you
in the unity of the Holy Spirit, one God,
for ever and ever.
and pray (δεόμενοι, deomenoi) that you have the strength
to escape the tribulations that are imminent
and to stand before the Son of Man (Luke 21:36).”
