A prayer for the day

This collect, written by Martin Luther, is appropriate for Holy Week or any other week for that matter:

Merciful, Everlasting God, Who did not spare Your only Son but delivered Him up for us all so that He might bear our sin upon the Cross: Grant us that our hearts may never be daunted or become discouraged in this faith.  Amen.

From "For All the Saints," page 951
