Father, I thank you that through the prayers of the saints, and the help given by the Holy Spirit, all that happens to me will turn out for my deliverance and avail toward the saving work of the Gospel. I eagerly expect and hope that I will in no way be ashamed but will have sufficient courage so that now as always Christ will be exalted in my body, whether by life or by death. For to me, to live is Christ and to die is gain. And I thank you Lord that as I go on living in the body this will mean fruitful labor for me. For you have promised me that I will see the reward of my labor.
