PRAYER WORKS

{These graphics are free for you to enjoy}

The Lord is good but we live in a world that isn’t. As a mental health paraprofessional who works with teenagers abused or struggling with addiction I guess you can say, I have seen it all.

I’ve seen young kids taste a little bit of sin and end up deep in an addiction before they even realize what hit them. I’ve seek kids with abuse stores that are mind boggling and hard to even begin to try to wrap your head around.

Sometimes, as I leave work my head doesn’t even feel like it’s mine anymore. It’s full of stories and visuals of those who need the healing hand of Jesus. My clients fill my mind and my heart starts to ache for those affected.

I’ll be the first to say,  I have no idea how to fix the problem. In fact, I can’t fix it. Only God can. Sin and sorrow is Jesus’ specialty. That’s the whole reason He came down to earth and sacrificed Himself for us. It was because He knew we were never too far gone.

It doesn’t matter what we do. It doesn’t matter how unrealistic or bad our situation is. It doesn’t matter what happened to us.

From the outside looking in, it may look like someone we know or truly care about won’t change or even get better but friend, never ever put a period on a sentence that isn’t finished yet.

Always remember; in a world full of hurt prayer works. It may take years or even decades but God is working in the background. I hold close to that promise as I am interceding for every single on of my kiddos through prayer on my way home from work.

I call each of them out by name and cry out for their situation because I know that my eyes can’t see the whole picture. God has got their situation worked out already. I pray for God to show them who He is because I know from the bottom of my heart that if they realize that, He can start changing their circumstance.

In this world full of pain not only in my job, but in the recent events we have gone through as a country I will continue to hold this truth close to my heart. Will you join me? Prayer works folks.

    Agree with you in prayer. For our country and our world in total disarray we pray that our Father, who art in heaven, bring us to our knees, humble all of us, and do a work in our heart.
    That we may turn form our wicked ways and live as reflections of Jesus. That as Christians, we live as Christ-like as humanly possible through the Holy Spirit living in us. In Jesus Name AMEN.
