We have heard Johann Starck’s exhortation for the afflicted person to take comfort in God’s almighty power—that is, His omnipotence. We have also prayed with Starck that God would rescue us from our affliction. In today’s meditation, we conclude Starck’s prayer and find comfort in some powerful hymn verses.
