Christ, the Father of compassion and the God of all

lives, so also through Christ our comfort overflows.

then I am strong.

Brothers, we do not want you to be ignorant about
those who fall asleep, or to grieve like the rest of
men, who have no hope.
Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything,
by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present
your requests to God
Since the children have flesh and blood, he too
shared in their humanity so that by his death he
might destroy him who holds the power of death —
that is, the devil — and free those who all their
lives were held in slavery by their fear of death.
Seeing then that we have a great High Priest who has
passed through the heavens, Jesus the Son of God,
let us hold fast our confession. For we do not have
a High Priest who cannot sympathize with our
weaknesses, but was in all points tempted as we are,
yet without sin. Let us therefore come boldly to the
throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy and find
grace to help in time of need.
