Father, You graciously provide us opportunities in life and you generously reward those of us who rise to these occasions. But we know that life’s challenges can sometimes be overwhelming. They can be demoralizing at times, sapping our energy and weakening our spirits. You, however, have promised us success in due time, if we persevere in our efforts and continue in our goals. Encourage us with this truth, so that we will not become weary, knowing for sure that our efforts will bear fruit. Amen.
