Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ
the Father of compassion and the God of all comfort
who comforts, consoles, encourages, strengthens, calls us near, invites us to come
in all our troubles, anguish, burdens, persecutions, tribulations, pressures, distress
so that we can comfort, entreat, call near those in any trouble
with the comfort, the invitation we ourselves have received from God
come into being, arise, come forth
find your place, become known
From 2 Corinthians 1:3-4.
