Lord, you have never promised that life would be easy. But you have promised your presence with us through your Holy Spirit. Thank you, Holy Spirit, that you are with us, encouraging, sustaining, and empowering us to stand.
Help us to be obedient to you in the midst of everything we go through. So that we can be faithful, just as you are faithful to us.
We surrender to you, Lord, asking that through our testimony, the world would see your love shining in our lives.
We ask this in the name of our faithful saviour Jesus Christ. Amen.
