My prayer for you and me this week...
...persevere on the sunshine filled, straight path; persevere on the foggy, winding path; persevere on the dark and narrow path, and persevere when you don't know why you should take one more step.
Persevere in doing good...persevere when you are growing weary. Persevere, press on...just one foot in front of the other with your eyes fixed on Jesus because He awaits you at the finish line. He is your Great Reward, Jesus Christ of Nazareth - King Jesus, and He will reward you with the crown of life!
Lord, Jesus, we want to persevere, help us to persevere. When we are weary, tempted to quit, give us a glimpse of Your presence, tune our ears to Your whisper as You call us by name, and remind us of the goal to finish the race for Your glory. In Your Strong and Sustaining name we pray, Amen!
