Thursday, August 17 — Psalm 99
Jeremiah 12:1–13:19; 2 Thessalonians 3:6–18
Many are the afflictions of the righteous, but the Lord rescues them from them all. Psalm 34:19
Paul wrote: But though we had already suffered and been shamefully mistreated at Philippi, as you know, we had courage in our God to declare to you the gospel of God in spite of great opposition. 1 Thessalonians 2:2
God of compassion, through your love and grace, give us the courage to face our afflictions and recognize your comforting presence. In Christ’s name, Amen.
