~~Family's Prayer of Comfort~~
Then you will say on that day,
“I will give thanks to You, O LORD;
For although You were angry with me,
Your anger is turned away,
And You comfort me.
“Behold, God is my salvation (yeshua)
I will trust and not be afraid;
For the LORD GOD is my strength and song,
And He has become my salvation (salvation)."
Therefore you will joyously draw water
From the springs of salvation (yeshua).
Yeshua (Jesus) is salvation. Amen
