New International Version
3 Not only so, but we[a] also glory in our sufferings,(A) because we know that suffering produces perseverance;(B) 4 perseverance, character; and character, hope. 5 And hope(C) does not put us to shame, because God’s love(D) has been poured out into our hearts through the Holy Spirit,(E) who has been given to us.
6 You see, at just the right time,(F) when we were still powerless,(G) Christ died for the ungodly.(H)

Precious Jehovah Mekaddishkem (The Lord Who Sanctifies You):
Our desire is for you to order our steps and make every step to have a purpose, both for our growth and for your glory. We understand that this journey of growth is not about us only, but also about the world around us. Be with us, Lord, in this season of climbing the steepest side of the mountain, we have ever faced. Give us the endurance to look to you for strength and guidance. You never promised the climb would always be easy, but you did promised that we would never be alone. We understand that in this season, as we take each step, you will sanctify our journey. May you be pleased with our walk. We make each step a prayer to you. Sanctify us, Lord, and let your will and purpose be done I’m our lives, as it has been spoken and declared in heaven. With lift this prayer of sanctification to you, in the powerful name of Jesus the Christ, Our Redeemer, Wayshower, and Friend. Amen.
