Scriptures for hope/strength ?

My husband is in jail, possibly going to prison. We are praying for strength. Does anyone have good scriptures that I could offer him?

  • I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me! The Lord will not leave me nor forsake me, He is with me always even unto the end of time. He is my help and my salvation! Hear me O Lord hear my cry and return unto me my salvation. The Lord said I will hide and keep thee under my wing.
