Lord God, You are the Sustainer of our souls. Because we pursue spiritual riches, we do not lose heart in this present affliction. We praise You that we see the glorious light of Your good news. We thank You that You have made Your light shine in our hearts, so we can know Your glory. Like fragile clay jars containing this precious treasure, we know that our great power is from You and not from ourselves. We thank You for renewing our spirits every day. Amen.
