Prayer for 1 Peter 2:20

“For what credit is there if you endure when you sin and are beaten? But when you do good and suffer, if you endure, it brings favor with God.”

Heavenly Father, thank You for this truth. There is a big part of me that does not want to suffer, but I thank You that Your grace is sufficient, no matter what unjustifiable suffering and persecution I may have to face. Thank You that in Christ I have all I need to endure suffering with godly patience. Help me to appropriate all that is mine in Christ Jesus my Lord, and to translate this into my everyday life, so that I am enabled to greatly rejoice in the God of my salvation - even in the midst of tremendous suffering and pain - in Jesus name I pray, AMEN
