“Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus” Philippians 4:6-7

Paul’s love for the church is evident as you read his letter to the Philippians. Even though he’s in jail for the sake of the Gospel, Paul is rejoicing that the church continues to work out their own salvation with fear and trembling. However, on a personal level, this had to be a very difficult time in his life.

It’s a known fact that prisoners in first century Rome were not treated well. After being beaten, Paul and Silas were thrown into the “inner” cell, which meant total darkness.

What was Paul’s response to this horrible suffering? He chose to pray. In every situation, whether difficult or joyous, God’s Word tells us to pray!

I’m thankful we can count on you to partner with us in prayer whether the situation is difficult or joyous. My heart’s cry is that many souls will come to the saving knowledge of Jesus Christ.

Until all have heard,
