"No temptation has seized you except what is common to man. And God is faithful; he will not let you be tempted beyond what you can bear. But when you are tempted, he will also provide a way out so that you can stand up under it."


1 Corinthians 10:13 NIV

It is difficult to see clearly God's love and ask him for help when we or our loved ones are afflicted by circumstances or blights common to man. These things seem daunting and beyond control at first. Let our first reaction always be prayer. First ask for a stronger back to bear the burden. Follow that by asking for His wisdom and courage to overcome these afflictions.



If you pray for help and do not have faith that you will receive it, then why are you disillusioned when you do not receive it? Is not faith the key to the door of Christianity. Therefore pray with faith that your prayers will be answered and they shall. Is it not written that God, our Father, knows everything in our hearts before we pray it? Have faith.


Do you think God as our Father would let his children experience unending suffering when they reach out to him in faith through prayer for something we really need to carry out his will and glorify his name? Unequivocally, no.


"Have faith in God," Jesus answered. "Truly I tell you, if anyone says to this mountain, 'Go, throw yourself into the sea,' and does not doubt in their heart but believes that what they say will happen, it will be done for them. Therefore I tell you, whatever you ask for in prayer, believe that you have received it, and it will be yours. And when you stand praying, if you hold anything against anyone, forgive them, so that your Father in heaven may forgive you your sins."

Mark 11:22-25 NIV


"And when you pray, do not be like the hypocrites, for they love to pray standing in the synagogues and on the street corners to be seen by others. Truly I tell you, they have received their reward in full. But when you pray, go into your room, close the door and pray to your Father, who is unseen. Then your Father, who sees what is done in secret, will reward you. And when you pray, do not keep on babbling like pagans, for they think they will be heard because of their many words. Do not be like them, for your Father knows what you need before you ask him"

Matthew 6:5-8 NIV



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