Father, You restore and strengthen us after we experience sufferings. You build us back up after our hardships. Though we go through difficulties and feel defeated many times, we are assured of Your loving care. By Your grace, we can overcome, so long as we persevere. Help me to keep these all firmly in my mind as I go about my daily work. Keep me strong and persistent as I handle my responsibilities and obligations. Energize me when I am tired. May I be unwavering in my resolve to pursue my goals in life. Amen.
