Bible: 2 Cor 1:8-11

1:8 For we do not want you to be unaware, brothers and sisters, 1  regarding the affliction that happened to us in the province of Asia, 2  that we were burdened excessively, beyond our strength, so that we despaired even of living. 1:9 Indeed we felt as if the sentence of death had been passed against us, 3  so that we would not trust in ourselves 4  but in God who raises the dead. 1:10 He 5  delivered us from so great a risk of death, and he will deliver us. We have set our hope on him 6  that 7  he will deliver us yet again, 1:11 as you also join in helping us by prayer, so that many people may give thanks to God 8  on our behalf for the gracious gift given to us through the help of many.
