Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil; For You are with me; Your rod and Your staff, they comfort me. You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies; You anoint my head with oil; My cup runs over.
Father we thank You for the strength You provide in our service to You.
2 Timothy 2:9
And because I tell that message, I am suffering. I am even bound with chains like someone who has really done wrong. But God’s message is not bound.
Your friend inside the house answers, ‘Don’t bother me! The door is already locked, and my children and I are in bed. I cannot get up and give you anything.’ I tell you, if friendship is not enough to make him get up to give you the bread, your boldness will make him get up and give you whatever you need.
Lord, help us this day to unmask the burden of our sins.
So since we stand surrounded by all those who have gone before, an enormous cloud of witnesses, let us drop every extra weight, every sin that clings to us and slackens our pace, and let us run with endurance the long race set before us.
2 Chronicles 15:7
Be strong, therefore, and let not your hands be weak and slack, for your work shall be rewarded.
