The Power of Prayer
We need to see Christ's lessons in all circumstances. We grow in Jesus' love as we live by faith each day. The disciple proposes and the Master disposes.
Many people spend their lives forever anxious and angry over very trifle. They look as if they live on selfishness and cruelty in constant dissatisfaction.
How must we avoid this failure? First, it means changing their attitude from self-pity to one of courage and fight on. Besides we must vaccinate ourselves against fear.
The power of prayer is our strength. Some of its fruits are peace, hope, joy, love, and encouragement.
We trust in Jesus. Then why do we not look to Him at all times for the things we need?
He said: "The Kingdom of God is within you.'' We should never forget the divine direction.
Each soul has its own credit. Faith is revealed by deeds. When man helps somebody in Christ's name, Christ answers this man by helping him through somebody.
However, we must pray always. We should not underestimate the value of our communication with God.
Will we have to go through hard times? Are our spirits low? Let us go on praying.
Prayer is light and our guidance in our own thoughts.
"Come Ye yourselves apart into a desert place, and rest a while: for there were many coming and going, and they had no leisure so much as to eat.'' - Jesus (Mark, 6:31).
