1 Peter 1:6-7



Take Time to Pray


Psalm 4:1

Answer me when I call to You,

O my righteous God.

Give me relief from my distress;

be merciful to me and hear my prayer.



Examine


6 In this* you greatly rejoice, though now for a little while you may have had to suffer grief in all kinds of trials. 7 These have come so that your faith – of greater worth than gold, which perishes even though refined by fire – may be proved genuine and may result in praise, glory, and honor when Jesus Christ is revealed.


* This refers to the truths in verses 3-5
