Humble yourselves, therefore, under God's mighty hand, that he may lift you up in due time. Cast all your anxiety on him because he cares for you.
Be self-controlled and alert. Your enemy the devil prowls around like a roaring lion looking for someone to devour. Resist him, standing firm in the faith, because you know that your brothers throughout the world are undergoing the same kind of sufferings.
And the God of all grace, who called you to his eternal glory in Christ, after you have suffered a little while, will himself restore you and make you strong, firm and steadfast. To him be the power for ever and ever. Amen.
Help me to stand firm in the faith, through Christ, who is my life. I pray for my brothers and sisters in Christ, around the world, who are going through the same types of trials and difficulties that I am facing. May we all be enabled to stand fast on the promises of God our Saviour in whose name we pray.
The Lord gives strength to his people; the Lord blesses his people with peace.
