“For in that He Himself has suffered, being tempted, He is able to aid those who are tempted” – Hebrews 2:18 ⠀⠀⠀ ⠀
“In the new year do not just present to God your vows, your promises and pledges, for these are above the level of your will and strength, but gather up all your desires and present them to God as a prayer, acknowledging your weakness, and do not make your promises as if you are relying on your own ability. Instead of promising to God that you will change yourself for the better, take from Him a promise that He will change you for the better.” HH Pope Shenouda III
