Hard Times May Come, But He’s There With Us Through Them All
Though we aren’t promised an easy life, we are told that Christ will be there with us when we believe in Him, that he won’t give us more than we can handle with His help, and even our hard times can be used to glorify God.
For Ministers Pray
2 Thessalonians 3:3-4
But the Lord is faithful, and he will strengthen and protect you from the evil one. And we have confidence in the Lord concerning you, both that you do and will do the things we command you.
Paul wrote to his friends at the Church of Thessalonica and desired them to pray for him, encouraging them to keep their trust in God and sends his petition for them to join him in seeking God for His Will. We call it the communion of the saints; we come together on one accord. It is the duty of the body of Christ to petition for their ministers, but not just them, but for ministers at large. As we focus our faith and energy for His Glory, we strengthen our fellows with our acts of devotion for God’s Glory; He is faithful and strengthens and protects us from the evil one. Can He have confidence in the Lord within us, now and as we advance.
Jehovah Elohim Tsaba, LORD God of Hosts - Psalm 59:5; we gather together to be faithful and robust for this, we thank you. For the protection you give us, we give you praise. We decree and declare the blessing (the indwelling of the Holy Spirit) who gives us confidence in the Lord, so that; we do and will continue to do the Will of Him who saves us. Now, for the Kingdom and Glory of God, we petition, with anointing, in the name of Jesus Christ, our Lord, and Savior, Amen.
