And this is the confidence that we have before him: that whenever we ask anything according to his will, he hears us. And if we know that he hears us in regard to whatever we ask, then we know that we have the requests that we have asked from him.

Quit

Father, thank you for surrounding me with such a great cloud of witnesses. Help me to get rid of every weight and the sin that clings so closely, and run with endurance the race set out for me, keeping my eyes fixed on Jesus, the pioneer and perfecter of my faith. For the joy set out for him he endured the cross, disregarding its shame, and has taken his seat at the right hand of your throne. Remind me of him who endured such opposition against himself by sinners, so that I may not grow weary in my soul and quit. Equip me with every good thing to do your will, working in me what is pleasing before you through Jesus Christ, to whom be glory forever. Amen.

Hebrews 12

Before us and beside us,
Still holden in Thine hand
A cloud unseen of witness,
Our elder comrades stand:
One family unbroken,
We join, with one acclaim,
One heart, one voice uplifting
To glorify Thy Name.

From "O Father, By Whose Servants" by George W. Briggs, 1920
