Pray in All Circumstances

Dear Reader,

Books / Pr - Prayer (2002) / Chapter 2—Our Need Of Prayer Chapter 2—Our Need Of Prayer

Pray in All Circumstances—In your business, in companionship for leisure hours, and in alliance for life, let all the associations you form be entered upon with earnest, humble prayer. You will thus show that you honor God, and God will honor you. Pray when you are fainthearted. When you are desponding, close the lips firmly to men; do not shadow the path of others; but tell everything to Jesus. Reach up your hands for help. In your weakness lay hold of infinite strength. Ask for humility, wisdom, courage, increase of faith, that you may see light in God’s light and rejoice in His love.—(The Ministry of Healing, 513.) {Pr 32.4}

Christ Jesus is the way, the truth, and the life. God is always the answer in time of need. Yet so many in this world do not turn to God when they become fainthearted. The world turns to therapists, drugs, alcohol, and even to their “friends.” Instead of going to the phone to call your friends, go to the throne in prayer to Christ Jesus. Your best friend will always be there for you, that is Jesus. Christ is our lifeline to heaven through prayer. In all circumstances, go to God first in earnest, humble prayer. Receive power from on high and receive the peace and joy only Christ can give. God will honor those who honor Him.
