Strengthen yourself with the sacraments and prayer. They will fortify you for the long haul.
St. Thomas More spoke eloquently on this subject. He said, “If I am distracted, Holy Communion helps me to become recollected. If opportunities are offered each day to offend my God, I arm myself anew each day for the combat by the reception of the Eucharist. If I am in special need of light and prudence in order to discharge my burdensome duties, I draw nigh to my Savior and seek counsel and light from him.”
In every place, then, I want the men to lift their hands up reverently in prayer. -1 Timothy 2: 8
