But He Himself withdrew [in retirement] to the wilderness (desert) and prayed. (Luke 5:16 AMP)
We go through so many things. In many of them feel so overwhelmed, anxious and just plain disturbed in our mind and hearts. When those moments arise is like our mind goes blank on what we are supposed to do. We think about everything thats wrong and how is affecting our life, but we just don’t seem to find the way to get through it. The simple answer lies in the reality of where our focus is. If our focus, even in the middle of the caos and disturbance, is Christ we have a surety inside our soul that we are not going through it alone. When our focus shifts from Christ to what we have encountered it becomes a rollercoaster of emotions that sometimes are so incontrolable even to the most spiritual Christian. What could we do in those circumstances we face that seem so impossible to bare? The answer lies in one word, Pray. This praying is not the one that you will hear from a pulpit with the elegant words. It is the prayer of supplication, rendition and need that comes from the deepness of your soul to the only one, the Almighty God, that can help you in this situation. It is not a prayer of quantity of words,but of a full trust in Whom is faithful.
On this day things maybe overwhelming and uncertain,but in the middle of thing know that prayer is the most powerful weapon to overcome any situation. Today pray knowing that God is there to listen.
Call upon Me in the day of trouble; I will deliver you, and you shall glorify Me.
In the midst of verses I try to find
Some answers to the action which arise
Not much to say, a lot to think
I ponder much on what I did
It may have been good in some eyes
To others more come as a surprise
I prayed for whom I did not know
Just acted on direction from Above
The look in their eyes was not much
But at the question, “May I pray for you?” They lit up
The boldness needed to do this approach
Was not easy to find, I just say from Above
To go up to someone in pain to offer life
Not knowing the situation just trusting The Holy Spirit inside
And when finish, the Amen sound
Tears in their eyes gave confirmation abound
That I may not know what’s going on
But our Heavenly Father knows it all
If I just trust Him acting on faith I shall see
A change in a life through the love shown come to be
My call is to serve no matter what
He knows the need; I just need to act
Poetry Y. R.
I want us to think about this tragic event. Pray for the people injured, lost and harmed and their families. The times we are living are not getting better. We have to be prepared and cling more to God than ever. More than ever prayer has to be our best weapon to use. My prayer goes to all of Boston. This is another event that did not hurt individuals but it has shaken the nation. May God give strength to all.
