Silent prayer requests needed!

Life is not always easy. God doesn't promise us unending, blissful days. He gives us trials, tribulations, and persecution to help draw us closer to Him. Finding a way to praise him during the most difficult times is critical. Recognizing that these trials are a grace from God might be hard sometimes, but it's the most beautiful gift God can give to us because it means he loves us and wants us to be sanctified (continually being made in the image of Christ).

James 1:2

Count it all joy, my brothers, when you meet trials of various kinds,

James 1:12

Blessed is the man who remains steadfast under trial, for when he has stood the test he will receive the crown of life, which God has promised to those who love him.

John 16:33

I have said these things to you, that in me you may have peace. In the world you will have tribulation. But take heart; I have overcome the world.”

1 Peter 4:12

Beloved, do not be surprised at the fiery trial when it comes upon you to test you, as though something strange were happening to you.

2 Timothy 2:21

Therefore, if anyone cleanses himself from what is dishonorable, he will be a vessel for honorable use, set apart as holy, useful to the master of the house, ready for every good work.

To my earthly father - - - my dad - - - I dedicate this song to YOU!
