I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or drink;
or about your body, what you will wear. Is not life more important than
food, and the body more important than clothes? Look at the birds of the

the way in which you provide for us. We would ask that you provide also
the faith, grace and courage to enable us to protect that which is so
precious to you.
