“Praying in faith is not denying that you have problems, but believing that God is BIGGER than your problems.”

~ Dr. Jerry Fowler

 

Rick Warren

“The more you pray, the less you’ll panic. The more you worship, the less you worry. You’ll feel more patient and less pressured.”

 

Bruce Lee

“Do not pray for an easy life, pray for the strength to endure a difficult one”

“The Divine Wisdom has given us prayer, not as a means whereby to obtain the good things of earth, but as a means whereby we learn to do without them; not as a means whereby we escape evil, but as a means whereby we become strong to meet it.”

~ Frederick W. Robertson

This week has been a very long and heavy week. I’m sure we’ve all had those weeks where you just want them to end and never look back at them. That is this week. First a boy named Raymond who was a sweet and kind hearted kid at the age of fourteen comitted suicide because of severe bullying. My heart is so broken that he is gone. I can’t believe it and then today one of my closets friends that I’ve known for over eight years threatened to commit suicide three times. She is now in a hospital getting help and my heart is so broken. It’s in moments like this that all I can do is pray. I know how awful mental hospitals are and how alone you feel. The free that surrounds you and how you feel like a freak. I am so broken hearted for her and…

“Pray hardest when it’s hardest to pray.”

In my opinion, prayer is the strongest defense against our daily trials and struggles.  It doesn’t matter how big or how small those troubles are, if we pray, we will feel better about what is happening.  God knows what He is doing, but sometimes we need His assurance that everything will work out for the best.  When we pray, sometimes it’s at our breaking point when we think nothing is going right.  But I also encourage you to start praying before things get rough so you don’t need to get to your breaking point before asking God for help.  Someone once told me that when we break down while we pray, it’s God’s way of showing us that we really need Him to help us.  Take a break today and send this quote to someone who is near a breaking point and needs…

“In the resurrection of Jesus from the dead, we see God’s decisive victory not only over death but over all God’s other enemies as well. In that one climactic event, we see the certainty that someday, in the kingdom of God, there will be no more violence, war, jealousy, or death… These forces are still alive and at work in the world, but because of the victory that God won at Easter, their doom is certain. One day death will die.”

Isaiah 52:13ff

“Behold, my servant [Targ. adds “the Messiah”] will accomplish his purpose;

he will be high and lifted up, and very exalted.

Just as many were appalled over you–

his appearance was a disfigurement from the human

and his form from that of humanity–

so he will startle many nations…

He was despised, a rejection of people,

a man of pain, one who knows sickness

and like a hiding of face from him,

he was despised, and we did not pay attention to him.

But surely it was our sickness he carried,

our pains he bore.

But we considered him stricken,

smitten of God and afflicted.

But he was pierced through for our rebellion,

crushed for our iniquities;

the punishment for our peace was on him,

and his welts made healing  for us

All of us, like sheep we go astray,

each one to his own way we…

Betrayed ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann ~ Photo Creation Swap

Betrayed with a traitor’s kiss,
from a known believer . . .
who would have thought it was
from the lips of the deceiver.

He appeared to everyone,
to be a faithful follower
to Christ and His ministry
he was a willing supporter.

But, Jesus knew his heart,
he saw evilness enter in
to place the kiss of death
on the One, who had no sin.

Upon the kiss of betrayal,
Jesus knew what He had to do
for, it was His Father’s will
to die for me and you.

Betrayed with a traitor’s kiss,
Jesus was on that day
for, He knew that into heaven . . .
there was no other way!

Luke 22:47

“And while he yet spake, behold a multitude,
and he that was called Judas, one of the twelve,
went before them, and drew near unto Jesus to kiss him.”

King James Version
