Rejoice in the Lord always; again I will say, rejoice;
let your forbearance be known to all men; the Lord [is] near;
for nothing be anxious, but in everything by prayer, and by supplication, with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known unto God;
and the peace of God, that is surpassing all understanding, shall guard your hearts and your thoughts in Christ Jesus.
