My God, My Prayer
During times of great despair and sorrow, when it seems life is no longer worthwhile. When our closest friends and family members have no advice that gives us comfort or satisfaction. When there is no longer anyone to turn to, this is the time we can turn to God. God is the first one we should turn to during troubled times. Job had more trouble than we can even imagine and yet, he turned to God. Job 22:27 (NKJV), says,27 You will make your prayer to Him, He will hear you,… But how should we pray? We can go to our friends and ask them to pray for us, or we can do as Jesus did. Matthew 26:36 reads, Then Jesus came with them to a place called Gethsemane, and said to the disciples, “Sit here while I go and pray over there.” Jesus prayed alone in the hours just before His death. Luke 22:44 And being in agony, He prayed more earnestly. Then His sweat became like great drops of blood falling down to the ground. Have you needed your prayer answered that you had prayed this hard? I doubt that any man could pray this hard but, God knows when we have great need of His help. James 5:16 tells us, The effective, fervent prayer of a righteous man avails much. I don’t know if I can call myself a righteous man, but I believe in God with all my heart and soul and, I believe God answers our prayers because He has responded to mine. Do not expect Him to answer right away but, in His own time, when it is best for you, He will answer, so be patient with the Lord above. Remember, God may not answer the way you want Him to answer but, he will hear you, Job 22:27 You will make your prayer to Him, He will hear you, You may not be answered the way God answered Job but, not many have gone through what Job had to endure. Job 42:10 And the Lord [a]restored Job’s losses when he prayed for his friends. Indeed the Lord gave Job twice as much as he had before.
If you have troubles so bad and have nowhere to turn, turn to God. He is always there for all of us.
