That I may be resolute and courageous in my duty, as one who knows that though I may be a loser for Christ, I shall not be a loser by Him in the end.

Lord, teach me to suffer hardship, as a good soldier of Christ Jesus, 2 Timothy 2:3(NASB) that I may not fear the reproach of man or their revilings, Isaiah 51:7(NASB) nor be ashamed of Christ or of His words, Mark 8:38(NASB) knowing whom I have believed, even One who is able to guard what I have entrusted to Him until that day. 2 Timothy 1:12(NASB)

Though bonds and afflictions should await me, Lord, grant that none of these things may move me, and that I may not consider life itself as dear to me, so that I may finish my course. Acts 20:23-24(NASB)

Enable me in everything to commend myself to God; 2 Corinthians 6:4(NASB) and then to pass by glory and dishonor, by evil report and good report, clad with the weapons of righteousness for the right hand and for the left, 2 Corinthians 6:7-8(NASB) as one who accounts it a very small thing to be examined by any human court, for the One who examines me is the Lord. 1 Corinthians 4:3-4(NASB)
