In Him who strengthens me
"I can do all things in You who strengthen me," has been for thirty years one of several brief prayers that I say out loud as soon as I get out of bed in the morning. It comes from the ending of St. Paul's Letter to the Philippians. Paul is not bragging that he can do all things. He is saying that whatever comes his way he can deal with because he lives in Christ and Christ lives in him.
