As you pray, both for yourself and fellow believers, seek for spiritual enlightenment. The insight to understand the hope we have in Christ, our treasured place with God, and his power which is at work in and through us.
What is our hope in Christ? That this life is not all there is. That at the end we will be resurrected into new and glorious bodies for an eternity with our creator. We need not be pitied for our hope in Christ. What we gain is infinitely greater than what we lose.
