God Desires to Help and Walk with You in Your Time of Need

May 23, 2018

Message Summary: God desires to walk with us and to help us, but God does not provide us with this support unless we pray and ask Him. James, the brother of Jesus and the author of James 5:13-16, succinctly describes prayer and its power for the followers of Jesus: “Is anyone among you suffering? Let him pray. Is anyone cheerful? Let him sing praise. Is anyone among you sick? Let him call for the elders of the church, and let them pray over him, anointing him with oil in the name of the Lord. And the prayer of faith will save the one who is sick, and the Lord will raise him up. And if he has committed sins, he will be forgiven. Therefore, confess your sins to one another and pray for one another, that you may be healed. The prayer of a righteous person has great power as it is working.”. Prayer gives us the ability to enter in to the very Throne Room of God thereby to commune with the Creator of the Universe and ask Him for His help. The only way to learn how to pray is just do it – just pray with your heart. Prayer; just you and our Lord in conversation.

Today’s Affirmation: Today, I affirm that because I am in Jesus ChristMy life is about Christ. (Philippians 1:21). “I can do everything through Him who gives me strength.” (Philippians 4:14).
