John 16:5-11

no one will take your joy away. On that day you will not question me about anything.
Amen amen, I say to you, whatever you ask the Father in my name he will give you. Until
now you have not asked anything in my name; ask and you will receive, so that your joy
may be complete.
Psalm 138: 1-2ab; 2cde-3; 7c-8

your right hand saves me
The Lord is with me to the end.
Lord, your love endures forever.
Never forsake the work of your hands!
