Draw those of us who remain in this life closer to one another, make us faithful to serve one another, and give us to know that peace and joy which is eternal life; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen. The Lord's Prayer may follow. A hymn or song may be sung. The pastor dismisses the people with the following or another blessing: Now to the One.   The struggle to find ourselves is very real, and that is why God has given us this armor: that we might recognize truth and understand ourselves, that we might have faith because of the gift of salvation, that we might attain righteousness to help us overcome the evils of life.

"The title of the book is a part of a petition directed to our prayerful attention several times during the liturgy. Why is it repeated so often? Why are we called upon repeatedly to commit ourselves, our loved ones, and our whole life to Christ our God? Remembering our most holy, pure, blessed, and glorious Lady, the Theotokos and ever virgin Mary, with all the saints, let us commit ourselves and one another and our whole life to Christ our God. People: To You, O Lord. Priest (in a low voice): Lord, You have given us grace to offer these common prayers with one heart. The first step in learning to let go of control is to stop striving. We don’t have to strive to make our life turn out a certain way; we just have to abide in Him. 2. Confess and Surrender Your Need for Control. If you’re like me and you crave control, the remedy for change is prayer. Go to God and be honest — tell Him how you feel. Theotokos and Ever-Virgin Mary with all the saints, let us commit ourselves and one another and all our life unto Christ our God. CHOIR: To Thee, O Lord. DEACON: For unto Thee is due all glory, honor, and worship; to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Spirit, now and ever and unto the Ages of Ages. CHOIR: Amen. Lord, I have Cried Unto.
