“Be joyful in hope, patient in affliction, faithful in prayer.”
Rejoice because hope in God and his promises is sure. Be patient because trouble and evil and even death will not win in the end. Be faithful in prayer because God is all-powerful, he is perfectly loving and wise, he listens, and he answers. And in the end, this is not done on human strength, but because he gives us strength through the power of his Holy Spirit.
