“I can do more than pray, after I have prayed, but I can not do more than pray, until I have prayed!”
As I hear the news of the last few days and weeks I grasp how evil seems to be prevailing and people are fearful of the days ahead and I realise how it is essential, ”absolutely necessary; extremely important”, that we all need a Saviour. A God who will fight for us and save us not only from ourselves but from this crooked and perverse generation. As a believer I take comfort in knowing that there is a hope and a future in Jesus, a future and a hope not of this world but one that is ETERNAL.
I was born in a christian family, being brought up knowing who God and Jesus were. I went to children’s church every Saturday, and ‘grown-ups’ church with my parents every Sunday. I was a good girl.
My parents taught me from a young age about God and it gave me a guideline as to how I had to live, to know that God existed and that He had a plan for my life.
“For the majority of the people, many from Ephraim and Manasseh, Issachar and Zebulun, had not purified themselves, and yet they ate the Passover contrary to what had been prescribed. For Hezekiah had prayed for them, saying “May the Lord pardon everyone who sets his heart to seek God – the Lord God of his fathers – even though it is not in accordance with the (ceremonial) purification (rules) of the sanctuary”. So the Lord listened to Hezekiah and healed the people (of their uncleanness).”.
