Rejoice always, pray without ceasing, give thanks in all circumstances; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you.

Prayer for our suffering and comfort

Blessed be to You O God our Father and our Lord Jesus Christ. You are the Father of mercies and God of all comfort. You comfort us in all our affliction, so that we may be able to comfort those who are in any affliction, with the comfort with which we ourselves are comforted by You.

We share abundantly in Christ's sufferings, so through Christ we share abundantly in comfort too. When we are afflicted, it is for the comfort of others; and when we are comforted, it is for the comfort of others, of those who experience pain and who patiently endure the same sufferings we suffer. Our hope for them to be unshaken, for we know that as we share in sufferings, we also share in our comfort. (adapted from 2 Corinthians 1:3-7)
