Prayer: the Faith Builder
As we’ve walked through 2020, this verse has been especially encouraging: “Be joyful in hope, patient in affliction, faithful in prayer.” Romans 12:12
I’m thankful that biblical hope is more than mere optimism or a glass half full mentality. The Lord will never leave or forsake us, and in that, we can find hope and joy. 2020 has been exceedingly challenging for many families, and while He is always good, He also asks us to be patient.
Prayer reminds us that He cares for his people. It is our opportunity to feel God’s closeness as we commune with Him. Sometimes in the midst of our circumstances, we forget that He is good and that we live in a broken world. Prayer builds our faith up again.
