Oh Lord, I pray that those in the faith will have courage to share their faith, help others in the faith, pray for those in the faith, and live a life for You. These things are what sets us apart from the world and I pray that everyone that believes in You will learn to truly love You and do Your will. I know that many people put up a pretty good front with people in the faith, especially while at church, but inwardly they are living in sin and doing what is wicked in Your sight. These things truly will destroy them if they do not repent and allow Your blood to cover them. You have suffered for our sins on the cross, but I know that it is up to us to repent and accept You in our lives also, before it goes into effect for us. Otherwise, we can live our own lives and pay the price for own tins in hell, after die. This is not the destination I wish for anyone that calls themselves Christians. Therefore, I pay that You will change the hearts of the brethren and sisters in the faith and lead them each day to live for You. Help them resist temptation and fight for Your cause. In doing this will they understand the need to help others in the faith and to pray for their needs. This I know is what You desire for our lives and I pray that I may always live my life for You also. You are my King and I praise You Lord. It is a great pleasure to open my mouth and declare Your great Name to the world. It is also a pleasure to help others in the faith grow closer to You daily. There needs are in my heart and prayers. You are my light and my love Lord. May Your love ever be with me. I love You. Amen.
1 Thessalonians 3:3,4 (KJV)
3 That no man should be moved by these afflictions: for yourselves know that we are appointed thereunto.
4 For verily, when we were with you, we told you before that we should suffer tribulation; even as it came to pass, and ye know.
As Christians, afflictions and trials will come our way. However, we suffer such things knowing that Jesus did so for us.
