After over 30 years of ministry I find myself dealing with so much despair with so many people. Is there something strange taking place today? When I hear about so many so-called preachers doing all types of odd behaviors, one must wonder, what is happening? The only thing I can do at this point is pray.
Jesus understood the need for prayer: His disciple did as well. They asked Jesus to teach us to pray? Jesus gave us The Lord's Prayer, "Our Father."
We too must be in a state of continuous prayer. The times are indeed so hard for so many. People share with me, my mother died, my wife is ill, my children are facing emotional problems, or you know that some one is fighting cancer...What are we to do?
The answer is: Do what Jesus did under the most dire circumstances. He prayed! Because when Jesus was in the garden He prayed so hard and the pain so great that He sweat blood. I noticed that our newly obtained Pope lied down on the floor during his Easter Prayer.
All we can is to pray in faith, that the Joy of Jesus will indeed happen by the absolute will of God. Jesus understood that The Power of God can and will make all things good and all things right in Jesus name we pray. Jesus died in the cross and rose from the grave and will return one day for you and I we pray.
