Be joyful in hope, patient in affliction, faithful in prayer (Romans 12:12). Today, we can experience joy because of the hope we have in Jesus. Even though it may be difficult, we can have patience during this time of affliction and crisis. And lastly, we can be faithful in prayer. As a community, we want to stand firm on the promise of God’s hope and bring our prayers to Him. He hears us, He knows us, He cares for us!
