“A prayer For Strength In The Midst Of Trouble”

February 29, 2016

Praying man Father, we confess that there are many teachings of the Bible that are hard to understand and challenging to apply. Yet we honor Your inspired Holy Word and hold it up as the standard for our pilgrimage here below. As lawlessness and ungodliness continue to spread all around the globe our comfort and safety is shaken. We  use the word, “blessing” when we receive unexpected gifts, promotions, have good health, a warm home and other such comforts. But Jesus informs us that we’re blessed when we’re hated, ostracized, insulted and when our name is scorned because of our devotion to Him which includes our stand for righteousness as defined in the Bible. If our only rewards were received here on earth Jesus’s statement would be deeply troubling, but when our vision is turned heavenward we find peace and strength in knowing that our greatest and lasting reward for remaining faithful in the face of evil awaits us in heaven. Don’t let us forget that promised, eternal blessing that lessens the sting of rejection and ridicule. In the name of Jesus we pray. Amen.
