I have told you this so that you might have peace in me. In the world you will have trouble, but take courage. I have conquered the world.
Just as you promised your Spirit, Lord, you have predicted hardships in this world. We are not to ignore this world or hide from it, but to confront it, respect it, and use it responsibly. You made it for us, not us for it.
Please, Spirit of truth, give me the courage to stand up against those who deny you. Thy will be done.
