Key: A song writer says: “Are you weary or heavy laden? Tell it to Jesus in prayer. Have we trials and temptations? Is there trouble anywhere? We should never be discouraged; Take it to the Lord in prayer. Oh, what peace we often forfeit; Oh, what needless pain we bear; All because we do not carry; Everything to God in prayer.” God knows what you’re going through but still wants you to present it to Him in prayer in Jesus’ name.
Action cue: “Therefore I say unto you, What things soever ye desire, when ye pray, believe that ye receive them (with thanksgiving), and ye shall have them.” Mark 11:24. Hallelujah!
