8For I tell you that Christ has become a servant of the Jewsb on behalf of God’s truth, to confirm the promises made to the patriarchs 9so that the Gentiles may glorify God for his mercy, as it is written:

“Therefore I will praise you among the Gentiles;

I will sing hymns to your name.”c

10Again, it says,

“Rejoice, O Gentiles, with his people.”d

11And again,

“Praise the Lord, all you Gentiles,

and sing praises to him, all you peoples.”e

12And again, Isaiah says,

“The Root of Jesse will spring up,

one who will arise to rule over the nations;

the Gentiles will hope in him.”f

13May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in him, so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit.

Lord, I am being tempted again.  Please fill me with Your joy and peace.  Please help me to trust in You so the hope of the Holy Spirit can return to my life.  Please Lord rescue me.  My life is crumbling again and everything I do to stop it fails.  Rescue us all.  Please Lord: joy, peace, trust and hope.  All of them can only truly come from You and my family needs them all so bad.  Change me Lord, change me.  *Romans15*
