As a prince hast thou power with God and with men, and hast prevailed.
O Lord Jesus Christ, with Whom Jacob prevailed, help us with that holy patriarch by prayer to hold Thee fast, and by love to cleave steadfastly unto Thee, our ever-present Aid. I entreat Thee, when Thy Providences are dark to our eyes strengthen our faith; and whatever portion thou allottest to us, give us grace to say, It is enough. Amen.
Editors’ Note: Christina Rossetti wrote a devotional entitled Annus Domini: A Prayer for the Days of the Year, Founded on a Text of Holy Scripture (1874). We will be featuring one of her prayers for the next 365 days.
