Thus says the LORD:
I have loved you with an everlasting love;
therefore I have continued my faithfulness to you.
With weeping they shall come,
and with consolations I will lead them back,
I will make them walk by brooks of water,
They shall come and sing aloud on the height of Zion,
and they shall be radiant over the goodness of the LORD,
over the grain, the wine, and the oil,
and over the young of the flock and the herd;
their life shall be like a watered garden,
and they shall languish no more.
Then shall the maidens rejoice in the dance,
and the young men and the old shall be merry.
I will turn their mourning into joy,
I will comfort them, and give them gladness for sorrow.
Jer.31: 2, 3, 9, 12-13
A prayer for beloved friends in times of trouble, that God will lead them through stress to calm, from turmoil to peacefulness.
May our tears be turned into dancing …. in the city of God.
