“O Lord, God of my salvation, I have cried day and night before thee: Let my prayer come before thee; incline thine ear unto my cry; For my soul is full of troubles; and my life draweth nigh unto the grave” (Psalm 88:1-3, in the King James Version of the Holy Bible).

He knows how to handle any situation. Maybe you are in an overwhelming circumstance today. Call on God. He will answer. Prayer is the only place to go when you are full of troubles. Take your troubles to Him and leave them at His feet. You’re not alone; God is right there with you.
Prayer: Thank You, Lord, for listening to me and calming my spirit. I am so glad that I can call on You at any time. You do hear me!

“God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble.” (Psalm 46:1 in the King James Version of the Bible)
God may not rescue us immediately from our trial, but we must understand that He has a greater purpose in mind.

Let’s determine in our heart to always run to Him in times of distress, in times of difficulty and in times of despair.
Prayer: You are the strength of my life. I bless you, O Lord, for being my refuge.
