Trials and sorrows
Here on earth you will have many trials and sorrows (John 16:33; NLT).
Three things will last forever – faith, hope, and love – and the greatest of these is love (1 Corinthians 13:13; NLT).
“I am leaving you with a gift – peace of mind and heart. And the peace I give is a gift the world cannot give” (John 14:27; NLT).
For if you do these things, you will never stumble, and you will receive a rich welcome into the eternal Kingdom of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ (2 Peter 1:10-11; NIV).
Please help us
In this world of trials and sorrows.
Heal our hatred and enmity,
Our fear and violence.
Fill us with faith and hope,
With peace and love.
Then bring us, at last,
To your eternal kingdom.
In Jesus’ name,
