How do you trust God when life is hard?
Ask God for help by praying.
Asking him to be with you can help you endure far more than you’d ever be able to on your own. You may wonder how to pray. Just speak, trusting God will hear you. Pray for his comfort and strength, rather than praying that he’d simply remove difficulties.
How do you keep faith in God in hard times?
You are faithful to me and I give thanks and praise. Give me a thankful heart in every situation I face. In Jesus’ Name I pray. Amen.”
Praise is beneficial because you:
- Encourage yourself. You move from the difficulty of the situation, to see God’s love, power and faithfulness.
- Drive out the enemy.
- Please God.
