Dear e-News friends & church members,
Day 2 Prayer & Fasting
“The righteous cry out, and the Lord hears them; he delivers them from all their troubles. The Lord is close to the broken-hearted and saves those who are crushed in spirit. A righteous man may have many troubles, but the Lord delivers him from them all…” – Psalms 34:17-19
The great confidence that we have, that we can cry out, in prayer to the Lord, and He hears us because:
“For if, by the trespass of the one man, death reigned through that one man, how much more will those who receive God’s abundant provision of grace and of the gift of righteousness reign in life through the one man, Jesus Christ.” – Romans 5:17
If you are in Christ, you are righteous.
Righteousness is a gift we receive, not a reward that we achieve.
Therefore, pray with boldness and confidence. The Lord will hear you.
There is nothing too big nor too small for Him to take care of. He wants to take care of it, and He wants to take care of you.
This verse above states that the Lord is near the broken-hearted, and saves those crushed in Spirit.
Thinking of India and the pandemic that has brought much pain and sorrow.
The verse ends saying that the righteous face many challenges, but the Lord delivers us from them all.
That should put a smile on your face, and strength in your spirit.
God bless you today as we pray together.
