Your pain will turn into joy. John 16:20
Dear heavenly Father, we are faithful, but in times of great need, we turn to you for your peace. We ask that you remove what troubles us and teach us to fear not. You have the ability to turn pain into joy, and we ask that you do that now. Lord, remove the suffering we are experiencing and remind us of all you have done and will continue to do for us, for you are a loving and caring God. We pray all this in Jesus’ name. Amen.
