But one thing I do, forgetting those things
which are behind … I press toward the
goal for the prize of the upward call of
God in Christ Jesus.
Father, I desire that they … whom You gave Me may be with Me where I am, that they may behold My glory which You have given Me. § I know whom I have believed and am persuaded that He is able to keep what I have committed to Him until that Day. § He who has begun a good work in you will complete it until the day of Jesus Christ.
Do you not know that those who run in a race all run, but one receives the prize? Run in such a way that you may obtain it. And everyone who competes for the prize is temperate in all things. Now they do it to obtain a perishable crown, but we for an imperishable crown. § Lay aside every weight, and the sin which so easily ensnares us, and let us run with endurance the race that is set before us, looking unto Jesus.

The Lord, He is the One who goes before you.
He will be with you, He will not leave
you nor forsake you.
If Your Presence does not go with us, do not bring us up from here. § O Lord, I know the way of man is not in himself; it is not in man who walks to direct his own steps.
The steps of a good man are ordered by the Lord, and He delights in his way. Though he fall, he shall not be utterly cast down; for the Lord upholds him with His hand.
I am continually with You; You hold me by my right hand. You will guide me with Your counsel, and afterward receive me to glory. § For I am persuaded that neither death nor life, nor angels nor principalities nor powers, nor things present nor things to come, nor height nor depth, nor any other created thing, shall be able to separate us from the love of God which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.
