God listens to a father’s prayer when responsibilities overwhelm him
Could anything feel more discouraging or frightening than facing a terrible trial all by yourself? It can be paralyzing to imagine having no one to lean on during times of crisis. But God assures you that if you know Him, you will never have to worry about facing life alone. He is right there with you, in easy times and in the difficult ones too. You can always count on the Lord, for He has promised never to leave you nor forsake you. Run to Him; tell Him what is on your heart and seek His wisdom. Learn to listen to the Holy Spirit, and He will guide you through every difficult situation you face.
For the mountains shall depart, And the hills be removed; But my kindness shall not depart from thee, Neither shall the covenant of my peace be removed, Saith the LORD that hath mercy on thee.
Be strong and of a good courage, fear not, nor be afraid of them: for the LORD thy God, he it is that doth go with thee; he will not fail thee, nor forsake thee.
Hast thou not known? hast thou not heard, That the everlasting God, the LORD, The Creator of the ends of the earth, Fainteth not, neither is weary? There is no searching of his understanding. He giveth power to the faint; And to them that have no might he increaseth strength.
