Let us pray for these precious brothers and sisters in the Lord that the presence of Jesus Christ would be a great comfort to them. 2 Timothy 4:17-18New King James Version (NKJV)The Lord Is Faithful17 But the Lord stood with me and strengthened me, so that the message might be preached fully through me, and that all the Gentiles might hear. Also I was delivered out of the mouth of the lion. 18 And the Lord will deliver me from every evil work and preserve me for His heavenly kingdom. To Him be glory forever and ever. Amen!
