Even though I walk through the darkest valley, I will fear no evil, for you are with me; your rod and your staff, they comfort me (Psalm 23:4; NIV).

Rejoice always, pray continually, give thanks in all circumstances; for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus (1 Thessalonians 5:16-18; NIV).

Shall we accept good from God, and not trouble? (Job 2:10; NIV).

But those who suffer, he delivers in their suffering; he speaks to them in their affliction (Job 36:15; NIV).

…we also glory in our sufferings, because we know that suffering produces perseverance; perseverance, character; and character, hope (Romans 5:3-4; NIV).

Please help me
Through this suffering.

Help me to face it,
Accept it,
And learn from it,
With you by my side.

Thank you for comforting
And encouraging me
Every step of the way.

May this experience
Help me reach out
To others in distress,
With prayerful understanding
And support.

In Jesus’ name,
