O LORD, you are my God; I will exalt you and praise your name, for in perfect faithfulness you have done marvelous things, things planned long ago.
Remember your leaders, who spoke the word of God to you. Consider the outcome of their way of life and imitate their faith.
In faithfulness he will bring forth justice; he will not falter or be discouraged till he establishes justice on earth. In his law the islands will put their hope.
In all my prayers for all of you, I always pray with joy because of your partnership in the gospel from the first day until now.
Do not withhold good from those who deserve it, when it is in your power to act.
