Claiming God's Promises

Say this prayer: "O Sovereign Lord, you are God! Your words are trustworthy, and you have promised these good things to your servants. Now be pleased to bless the house of your servant, that it may continue forever in your sight; for you, O Sovereign Lord, have spoken, and with your blessing the house of your servant will be blessed forever."

-2 Samuel 7:28, 29

God's Opinion Takes Precedent

"People may try to discourage you with negative comments or mockery, but continue to do what you know is right. By doing what is right, you will be pleasing God, whose opinion matters most."

-LASB, pg. 566
