But the Lord stood by me and strengthened me, so that through me the message might be fully proclaimed and all the Gentiles might hear it. So I was rescued from the lion’s mouth. (2 Timothy 4:17 ESV)
Але Господь став при мені та й мене підкріпив, щоб проповідь виконалась через мене, та щоб усі погани почули її. І я визволився з пащі лев’ячої… (2 Тимофію 4:17 Ukrainian)
O LORD God Almighty, our dear Father in heaven ~ today we are rejoicing in your great love that is more noble and intense than any earthly mercy we have ever received. We are deeply thankful dear Jesus, that you never abandoned the apostle Paul in his labors to expand the borders of the Kingdom of Christ. Be with the many faithful servants today who are working night and day in tears that come from one days’ seeming failure to convert a single lost soul. Encourage those who are laboring nearby and in far off lands – not to give up while the battle for lost souls is raging. Give them and their families a sense of joyful accomplishment that they are doing your good will. We fervently pray in the precious name of Jesus, Amen.
