Day 25 - 40 Day Prayer Pledge
No temptation has overtaken you that is not common to man. God is faithful, and He will not let you be tempted beyond your ability, but with the temptation He will also provide the way of escape, that you may be able to endure it. 1 Corinthians 10:13
Sometimes our journey as Christians is so difficult, dry, or painful that we want to give up. That’s when we need to remember that we are not alone, and that all the difficulties and sufferings of our lives can actually take on eternal meaning when through prayer we unite them with Christ’s own sufferings on the Cross. How often do I pray for other people who are going through hard times? How quickly do I turn to God in prayer when I face hard times myself? Reread the verse, slowly; let it fill you with confidence that even when trials and tribulations come your way, God is right there beside you.

A Prayer for Help
God of life,
there are days when the burdens we carry
chafe our shoulders and wear us down;
when the road seems dreary and endless,
the skies gray and threatening;
when our lives have no music in them
and our hearts are lonely,
and our souls have lost their courage.
Flood the path with light,
we beseech you; turn our eyes
to where the skies are full of promise.
