Love the LORD! Be strong because of your hope in the LORD. In other words, recognize where your strength is. Acknowledge your source of grace. Give praise to God for his abundant mercy and power lavished on us through his Holy Spirit. The LORD God does preserve his people. He does honor faithfulness even if it is mocked in this world. The LORD will bless his people and deal justly with those who mock and abuse them.
Love the LORD, all his saints! The LORD preserves the faithful, but the proud he pays back in full. Be strong and take heart, all you who hope in the LORD.
— Psalm 31:23-24
Dear LORD, for we find ourself in trying times with enemies at our door and opponents on every side. Please give us wisdom to see your grace that leads us. Please give us courage to stand up for what is right, pure, and holy. Please give us a vision to see the things you want to use us to do for your glory. Please keep our hope passionately alive as we wait for your work in us to be accomplished. In Jesus' name. Amen.
