Call upon Me in the day of trouble; I will deliver you, and you shall glorify Me
(Psalm 50:15, NKJV)
We often hear people say, “at least I can pray for you”. No! No! That is the most they can do for you.
Less than two months after Lincoln was inaugurated President, the Civil War began with Confederate troops in Charleston, South Carolina, firing upon Fort Sumter. The Confederate Army was unstoppable, twice winning battles at Bull Run, Virginia, just twenty miles from Washington, D.C., forcing the Union troops to retreat to the fortifications of the Capitol. It wasn't until the Battle of Gettysburg, over two years into the war, that the tide began to turn. President Lincoln confided: "I have been driven many times upon my knees by the overwhelming conviction that I had nowhere else to go."
Don’t make prayer the last resort make it your priority. If you are looking for light at the end of the tunnel then turn to the light of the world.
