2 Corinthians 1:8; 2 Corinthians 1:11

For we do not want you to be unaware, brothers,1 of mthe affliction we experienced in Asia. For we were so utterly burdened beyond our strength that we despaired of life itself.

11 sYou also must help us by prayer, so that many will give thanks on our behalf tfor the blessing granted us through the prayers of many.
