2 Timothy 4:17-18

Illustration of 2 Timothy 4:17-18 NCV — But the Lord stayed with me and gave me strength so I could fully tell the Good News to all those who are not Jews. So I was saved from the lion’s mouth. The Lord will save me when anyone tries to hurt me, and he will bring me safely to his heavenly kingdom. Glory forever and ever be the Lord’s. Amen.

Lord, forgive those who stand against me and give them what they need most of all. Help me to remember that You are the source of my strength. Lord, help me to tell others about Jesus so they can know the peace that passes all understanding — and help me demonstrate it. Deliver me from all enemy attacks. Bring me safely into Your eternal kingdom: heaven.
