It is good that one should hope and wait quietly for the salvation of the LORD. * In my distress, I said, “God cannot see me!” But you heard my prayer when I cried out to you for help. * “In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world.” * I waited patiently for the LORD. He turned to me and heard my cry. * Be joyful because you have hope. Be patient when trouble comes, and pray at all times. * We must not become tired of doing good. We will receive our harvest of eternal life at the right time if we do not give up.
