"Be joyful in hope, patient in affliction, faithful in prayer."

To rejoice in hope : is built on nothing less than trusting in the cross of Christ and taking God at His Word.

To be patient in tribulation-  his strength is sufficient to see us through every difficulty of life, because he has already overcome sin and death – and we are united with Him and His victory.

To be constant in prayer -As saints of God we should all be instant in prayer – constantly lifting our hearts and voice to the Lord in prayers of thanks and praise and intercession and requests – and laying them before the throne of God’s Grace, in the name of JESUS - knowing that greater is He that is in us that He that is in the world.
