We’re still alive. We shouldn’t complain when we are being punished for our sins. Instead, we should think about the way we are living, and turn back to the LORD. --LAMENTATIONS 3:39-40, CEV

God who brings comfort, 
help me in my affliction, 
make me aware of your goodness and love, 
so that I can turn from the wrong paths, 
and know your comfort once again. Amen.
