“Be joyful in hope, patient in affliction, faithful in prayer.”
-This scripture seems simple yet complex & powerful, giving a summary of what human life comprises, for we face affliction in our daily encounters, dwell in prayer & live in hope for a better future in Christ Jesus. Apostle Paul reminds us to rejoice always, pray without ceasing & give thanks in everything; for this is the will of God through Jesus Christ (1 The 5:16-18). We are therefore called to keep praying, hold fast patience, give thanks to God in times of affliction & joy, with our hope placed on Christ Jesus our Lord & Saviour.
Merciful Father, blot out all my iniquities & wash me with Your blood that I may be whiter than snow. Create in me a clean heart Lord & renew a steadfast spirit within me. Do not cast me away from Your presence Lord & do not take away Your Holy Spirit from me. Restore unto me the joy of Your salvation & uphold me by Your generous Spirit. You are my strength & shield Lord; my heart trusts in You alone. Direct me in the way I should go, deliver me at the wake of weakness, help me to be persistent & patient in prayer, & plant in me Your eternal joy; Almighty Father. You deserve all the glory & praise; Lord. Amen
