“If only you would prepare your heart and lift up your hands to him in prayer!

Get rid of your sins,
and leave all iniquity behind you.

Then your face will brighten with innocence. You will be strong and free of fear.

You will forget your misery;
it will be like water flowing away.

Your life will be brighter than the noonday. Even darkness will be as bright as morning.

Having hope will give you courage.
You will be protected and will rest in safety.

You will lie down unafraid,
 and many will look to you for help.”

—Job 11:13-19 NLT
