Almighty God and Father
Your faithful servant
Lord, make me ready
let me stand before you on this day
with my heart uplifted to you.
With the promise of life eternal
I remain your faithful servant.

Luke 21:34-36, NRSV
“Be on guard so that your hearts are not weighed down with dissipation and drunkenness and the worries of this life, and that day does not catch you unexpectedly, like a trap. For it will come upon all who live on the face of the whole earth. Be alert at all times, praying that you may have the strength to escape all these things that will take place, and to stand before the Son of Man.”
