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. 1 Peter 5:10 (NIV)

God of all grace, you do not ask us to go where you are not already going before us. Teach us to trust you. We go out today in your name. Amen.
