“If we suffer we shall also reign with Him.” 2 Timothy 2:12
O God our help in ages past, hitherto you have led us and henceforth you shall lead. Across our paths comes suffering of various kinds. Sometimes it is personal having to do with our displeasure with ourselves. Sometimes it is inflicted by others because they misunderstand us. Sometimes you bring it about to chastise us for our waywardness. Sometimes it is brought on by evil forces because of our stand in righteousness. We are thankful for the privilege to suffer for Jesus who suffered for us; in His powerful name we pray.
