Rejoice in hope, be patient in tribulation, be constant in prayer.

VerseD: Colossians 4:2

Continue steadfastly in prayer, being watchful in it with thanksgiving.
Colossians 4:2, ESV

Do not merely recite prayers “because you have to.” Pray continuously, seeking God, His will, and wisdom, but also being aware of your world and those around you. And thank Him for His provision, that He is in control, and His love and grace.

looking to Jesus, the founder and perfecter of our faith, who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross, despising the shame, and is seated at the right hand of the throne of God.

What is faith? Jesus is the source. Without the cross and resurrection, we have no basis for faith.

Christ’s faithfulness gives us faith.

God deserves all praise, honor, and glory, if for no other reason than He created everything.

Further, He saved us through His Son. That deserves our love and devotion.
