1 Peter 3:15-16 Always be ready to give an explanation to anyone who asks you for a reason for your hope, but do it with gentleness and reverence.
“My child, imitate me and do not give in to despair. Let all who see you be drawn to me through your great peace and hope, even in trial and adversity. Rest in me. Let me be your provider. Lead all to me by word and example. Child, there is much-so much!-work to do for souls. Do not waste an instant.”
Lord, let my prayers sanctify my work so that all I do will work for the kingdom. Lord have mercy. Amen.
