As days on which the Jews had rest from their haters, and the month which for them was turned from sorrow to joy, and from weeping to a good day: and that they were to keep them as days of feasting and joy, of sending offerings to one another and good things to the poor.
I have said all these things to you so that in me you may have peace. In the world you have trouble: but take heart! I have overcome the world.
I pray, I pray that,
in the Lord Jesus,
in God with us,
in the word which was God,
and became flesh,
and dwelt among us,
in him who stands at the door and gives a sign, “Let Me In”.
You may find peace,
peace, that once he has taken you in,
and once you have let him in,
and once he has taken you in his hand,
he will never draw you out of it again.
I pray that you might have that peace,
knowing that whatever trouble you encounter in the world.
He is always with you,
watching over you,
lighting your path,
let it be our Lord in whom we have peace.
In Jesus mighty name. Amen.
