A Prayer for the Hopeless
By Jessica Van Roekel
"Indeed, we felt that we had received the sentence of death. But that was to make us rely not on ourselves but on God who raises the dead. He delivered us from such a deadly peril, and he will deliver us. On him we have set our hope that he will deliver us again." - 2 Corinthians 1:9-10, ESV
When trials come, do you tend to blame God, run away from him, or turn to him? Sometimes I do all three. The mentality of, “I’m a child of God, so why am I experiencing this?” runs through our minds. So, we stomp our feet and demand God fix it like a little toddler throwing a tantrum. Other times, we turn away from faith in him. Sometimes we turn to our religious duties of church and decide relationship with God is too risky, so we keep him at arm’s length.
