Lord our God,
as we journey with your Son through his death and Resurrection,
teach us the virtue of patience as he had patience during his suffering.
Teach us hope, since he had hope in the good things to come.
Teach us prudence as Jesus shows us how to deal with our adversaries.
Teach us fortitude that we may not waver and fall but stand firm against temptations.
Teach us wisdom that we may seek you above all things.
Teach us Lord by the example of your Son’s patient suffering,
that we may grow closer to you as we walk with you.
We ask this through Jesus Christ, our Lord,
