Praise to the God of All Comfort

Blue Splash Cross of Christ2 Corinthians 1:3-7 (NIV)

3 Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ,

the Father of compassion and the God of all comfort,

4 who comforts us in all our troubles,

so that we can comfort those in any trouble with the comfort we ourselves receive from God.

5 For just as we share abundantly in the sufferings of Christ, so also our comfort abounds through Christ.

6 If we are distressed, it is for your comfort and salvation;

if we are comforted, it is for your comfort, which produces in you patient endurance of the same sufferings we suffer.

7 And our hope for you is firm, because we know that just as you share in our sufferings, so also you share in our comfort.

Lord your children need you!  Wrap your arms around us.  Let us know the joy we bring to your heart.  Continue at our side through our troubles and triumphs! Embrace us and give us the peace we crave!  Protect us and inspire us. Ordain us as ambassadors of HOPE! Amen.
