I can do all things through Christ which strengthens me.

--Philippians 4:13 (NIV)

Army Staff Sergeant Wilma Cannon, though deployed to Iraq, had every day filled with worthy causes. Monday, a visit to an Iraqi citizen in the Brigade hospital; Tuesday, take donated clothing to a local orphanage; Wednesday, Bible study classes with unit personnel …and so forth. Sergeant Cannon was usually exhausted at the end of most days. On a Sunday afternoon, Sergeant Cannon thought to herself: “Am I really doing what God wants me to do? Why do I have all of these headaches and sleepless nights?”

Sergeant Cannon thought once again: “May I need to pray about everything I’m doing these days. May God will send me some help. Maybe I need to drop all of this work!”

While visiting the unit library, Sergeant Sergeant Cannon came across a quotation written by clergyman, Philip Brooks. “Do not pray for challenges equal to your God given talents. Pray for powers equal to the tasks God has elected to give you.”

Pastor Brooks words made Sergeant Cannon realize something. That she was praying for all the wrong things as well as for all of the wrong reasons. Rather than pray for her will to be fulfilled, she decided to pray for guidance. She also realized the problem was not one of too much to do but of attitude and a lack of faith. Instead of praying for few responsibilities, she learned to ask for His help.



Prayer: Lord, help me to remember who is in control.


If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW
