Today we will be dealing with prayer points for hope and courage in a difficult time. Difficult times will come in our lifetime. The scripture told us in the book of John 16:33 These things I have spoken to you, that in Me you may have peace. In the world, you will have tribulation, but be of good cheer, I have overcome the world.” The scripture told us beforehand that we will face tribulation in life but we should be of good fate because Christ has conquered the world.
When a difficult time comes, it takes grace to keep hope and courage alive. Remember when Christ was walking on the water and He called out Peter to join him on the sea. Peter had the courage to step forward because it was Christ who has called him out. His courage translated into the faith that births the miracle of him walking on the water. However, when the storm came, his gaze shifted away from Jesus and he began to sink. Still, Peter called out Jesus because he knew Christ would not let him die.
Different problems will come at us in life, we can only be courageous and keep hope alive to conquer the problem. Unfortunately, it doesn’t come that easy. The storm of life shifts the gaze of a man away from the cross. He will be blinded by the storm to an extent that he would not see a God coming for his rescue in the storm. When the Apostles were on the boat and the storm came, they lost every consciousness that Christ was on the boat with them. They were overwhelmed with the fear of dying that they didn’t even realize that there is a God in the boat who has the power to calm the storm. Until they were almost sinking before they called Jesus to come to their rescue.
Our faith must be kept alive during a difficult time. One thing we must know as believers is that God will never abandon us in that predicament. He would not leave us to suffer. When the time is right as the scripture said, the Lord will make it happen. Our hope and courage at that time become the catalyst that fuels our miracle. I pray for as many people going through one challenge or another, the grace to keep standing, may heaven release it upon you today in the name of Jesus Christ. That situation testing your faith, I decree that an end come to it today in the name of Jesus Christ.
