Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of mercies and God of all comfort, who comforts us in all our affliction, so that we may be able to comfort those who are in any affliction, with the comfort with which we ourselves are comforted by God.
2 Corinthians 1:3-4, ESV
Do you need comfort? God desires for us, those who are His followers, to be comforted and to be bringers of comfort to those who suffer. In some of the most difficult times in my life, I have been given such great comfort by many people of faith. We are called to be comforters to those who are hurting, and, ultimately, we can find the greatest comfort in all our struggles in our Lord Jesus Christ by being the holders of his Word and carrying it out to those in need of comfort. Be a comforter as you have been comforted.
Let us pray. I thank you, my heavenly Father, through Jesus Christ, your dear Son, that you have kept me this night from all harm and danger, and I ask you to protect me this day also from sin and every evil, that in all I do today, I may please you. For into your hands, I commend myself, my body and soul, and all that is mine. Let your holy angel watch over me, that the wicked foe have no power over me. Amen.
