    2 Timothy 1:1-8
    1 Paul, an apostle of Christ Jesus by the will of God according to the promise of the life which is in Christ Jesus,
    2 To Timothy, my beloved child: Grace, mercy, and peace from God the Father and Christ Jesus our Lord.
    3 I thank God whom I serve with a clear conscience, as did my fathers, when I remember you constantly in my prayers.
    4 As I remember your tears, I long night and day to see you, that I may be filled with joy.
    5 I am reminded of your sincere faith, a faith that dwelt first in your grandmother Lo'is and your mother Eunice and now, I am sure, dwells in you.
    6 Hence I remind you to rekindle the gift of God that is within you through the laying on of my hands;
    7 for God did not give us a spirit of timidity but a spirit of power and love and self-control.
    8 Do not be ashamed then of testifying to our Lord, nor of me his prisoner, but share in suffering for the gospel in the power of God,

    Psalms 96:1-3, 7-8, 10
    1 O sing to the LORD a new song; sing to the LORD, all the earth!
    2 Sing to the LORD, bless his name; tell of his salvation from day to day.
    3 Declare his glory among the nations, his marvelous works among all the peoples!
    7 Ascribe to the LORD, O families of the peoples, ascribe to the LORD glory and strength!
    8 Ascribe to the LORD the glory due his name; bring an offering, and come into his courts!
    10 Say among the nations, "The LORD reigns! Yea, the world is established, it shall never be moved; he will judge the peoples with equity."
