In the past couple of years since the COVID-19 pandemic, people are dealing with the effects of great loss. Not only the loss of a loved one but some even lost their financial security. In fact, most of us around the world are working to ‘rise from the ashes,’ so to speak.
But that my friends, has been much easier for some than others. That is to say, for the others, it has been extremely difficult. Because depression and hopelessness have taken over their lives. Oh, but there is peace and hope that is readily available for all who will receive it. Hence, this podcast episode — THE PROMISE: Christ Makes All Things New.
In general, most people have experienced or are experiencing some type of pressure. Hence, the need for this episode, Pressure Applied Prayer. Now, before going any further the educator in me wants to make sure we are all on the same page. Because the word ‘pressure’ has several different meanings.
So, for this post, the pressure we are referring to means burdens of physical or mental distress. No doubt, we can all agree, the COVID-19 pandemic put families around the world under a great deal of pressure. For me, I could not go through the pressures of life without pressing back with prayer.
Apply prayer to every situation
Have you ever heard the phrase “Prayer changes things?” I am a witness; I know prayer works. You see, I know for a fact that when I pray, God always hears me. And He has shown me as such, time and time again throughout my life.
Happy New Year!!! We all can agree, 2020 was a doozy. The COVID-19 pandemic wreaked havoc around the world. Therefore, 2021 was a welcomed sight. A new year and a new beginning.
As a person of faith, I could not have made it through 2020 without prayer. Thus, praying is a major part of my daily life, because prayer is how I communicate with God.
If you are reading this blog post then you are alive; that is a blessing. You lived to see a new year. And no matter how you got here; you are here. So, take this opportunity to begin again. But I would suggest you start 2021 with prayer because prayer is simply conversing with God. No doubt, He wants to hear from you.
When New Year’s Day 2020 came in, the resolutions began and planners made their plans for the year. Some people already had dates in 2020 scheduled well before 2019 came to an end. Most people in America had no idea that in March 2020 everything would come to a screeching halt. Because COVID-19 changed life as the world knew it. So, with all that is happening daily, there are those who are searching for peace in stressful times.
