Lord, we are assured that there is a beginning, middle and end to every trial and test that we are to endure. You promised a permanent reward for all who overcome. We overcome in your name. We overcome by your blood. We overcome because you are the One WHO stands alongside to help us. You are with us always, and because of your grace, we are able to safely reach the other side, as we pass the test and receive our crown of righteousness. Amen.
