Get your eyes off yourself and your problems and get them onto Jesus. Put your faith in Him; He will not let you down.

Prayer!

 

 

 

 

 

Jesus looked up and said, “Father, I thank you that you have heard me. I knew that you always hear me, but I said this for the benefit of the people standing here, that they may believe that you sent me.”
John 11:41-42

 

 

 

 

 

 

Jesus-the only perfect man-prayed consistently. He prayed to give God thanks and He prayed when He was afraid (Luke 22:42-44). We should follow His example and pray continuously as well.

Philippians 4:6 says, “Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God.” When we pray, we open the door for God to work within us and in our lives. He promises to give us what we need. Matthew 7:7 says, “Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you.” God can’t make you enter into His kingdom, but He can stand at the door and knock.

Peter walked on the water until his focus turned away from Jesus to himself. As long as he kept his eyes on Jesus he did not sink. When he looked at his circumstances he started to sink.

Get your eyes off yourself and your problems and get them onto Jesus. Put your faith in Him; He will not let you down.
