I don’t know about you, but sometimes, in the midst of praying, I can get a bit discouraged. It seems there is no end to the dire prayer requests popping up on my phone and in my email. I can’t say for certain whether things are worse than they have ever been, but I can say we are more aware of the problems Christians are facing than at any other time in history.
It can be overwhelming until we remember to Whom it is we are praying. God is not overwhelmed. He is not caught off-guard by what is going on in the world. Best of all, He remains the answer to all the problems and heartaches. The world may change, but our God never does.
