~Scripture Sentence~

We do not live by bread alone,

but by every word that comes from the mouth of God.

(Matthew 4.4)





Almighty God,

whose Son fasted forty days in the wilderness,

and was tempted as we are, yet did not sin:

give us grace to direct our lives in obedience to your will,

that, as you know our weakness,

so may we know your power to save;

through Jesus Christ our Redeemer,

who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit,

one God, now and for ever.
