Prayers are still needed

by Rev. Rick Pursley

“In my distress I called to the Lord; I cried to my God for help. From His temple he heard my voice; my cry came before Him, into his ears.” Psalm 18:6
 The news the past few days has been anything but positive.  Our brothers and sisters in Kentucky are experience the wrath of Mother Nature as the death count likely will go up from the devastating floods.  The devastation left after a flood will take not weeks or months, but years to rebuild. We most certainly need to keep them in our prayers.

King David, a man after God’s own heart was devoted in his praise to God, even in his darkest hours.  It was then that he drew closer to God.  We should do the same.  We all know somebody whose hearts are simply overwhelmed with excruciating burdens.  Burdens we perhaps would not understand the magnitude of emotion unless we have dealt with a similar circumstance in our own lives. 

We must remember to lift up our burdens and the burdens of our loved ones to the throne of God.  He is very aware of our pain, our frustrations, our anger and our fear.  He will lift us up and carry us when we can no longer carry ourselves.
