Featured Prayer: Year in review

"In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world" (John 16:33).

God, you do expect something from us for sending your son to live the perfect life we couldn’t live, to die the death we deserve, and to prepare a place for us in paradise with you—to share the saving message or your son, Jesus Christ, with others. And you don’t promise that it will be easy. But you do promise that you have overcome the troubles of this world. Help us to always fix our eyes on you and your promises, so that when life gets tough we continue to praise you and share your promises with others, encouraging brothers and sisters along the way. Amen.
