“Trouble and prayer are closely related to one another.
Prayer is of great value to trouble. Trouble often drives men to God in prayer,
while prayer is the voice of men in trouble.
There is great value in prayer in the time of trouble.
Prayer often delivers one out of trouble and,
more often, gives strength to bear trouble, ministers comfort in trouble,
and begets patience in the midst of trouble. Wise is he in that day
of trouble who knows his true source of strength and who fails not to pray.
Trouble is common to man.
There is no exception in any age or climate,
or station. Rich and poor alike, the learned and the ignorant, one and all,
are partakers of this sad and painful inheritance of the fall of man.”
E.M. Bounds, [1835]

Aimee Copeland
Aimee’s incredible story of how she dealt with
unimaginable troubles teaches us all to rely on prayer.

No one is immune from being in the school of trouble. Trouble walks into our lives unannounced all the time.  Today, let’s take a good look into three passages of scripture:

  1. John 13:7, “You don’t understand now what I am doing, but someday you will.”
  2. John 14:1, 27, “Don’t let your heart be troubled. Trust in God, and trust also in me” (v. 1, NLT) and “I am leaving you with a gift—peace of mind and heart. And the peace I give is a gift the world cannot give. So don’t be troubled or afraid. Remember what I have told you” (v. 27, NLT).

If you need a safe place to talk about your troubles, please remember
