Liturgical Prayer

Giving thanks

I know what it is to be in need,
and I know what it is to have plenty.

I have learned the secret of being content
in any and every situation,
whether well fed or hungry,
whether living in plenty or in want.

I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.

Let nothing be preferred to the Work of God – Rule of Benedict 43:3
