"Living in peace, do not the saints fall asleep in the arms of victory?" Charles Spurgeon
Let it be so, Lord Jesus. Teach me to live in peace in all circumstances, and in the struggle help me to not let go of you in the midst of it. Let me learn from Jacob who wrestled all night long with the cry, "I WILL NOT LET GO UNTIL YOU BLESS ME!" Teach me to rest in the knowledge that you are my Immanuel, my Prince of Peace, and that no amount of trial changes that. Remind me that my Good Shepherd will let me through the valley not for my demise but for my good and may I feel the comfort of Your rod and staff. Amen.
