I have found some of my most rewarding times are when it a few moments before prayer I was anxious and downcast in spirit. God is our very present help in times of trouble. He hears and answers prayer. He desires to bring joy and peace and comfort to our souls.
Comfort in the Midst of Trials
Right in midst the trials, in the heat of them,
God’s children can be comforted deep within.
Even in discomfort, you have assurance God is there;
To fully know that He cares.
In days-long where feelings are low;
The Son still shines so that you grow.
When clouds are black and all around in despair,
Trust and know God is just and fair.
When times travels fast and life seems to pass you by;
Choose to look forward to your future on high.
Watch for the narrow way again
He gives strength and the ability to walk the path with Him.
Jesus is truth, life and the way, peace and joys unfold,
He is shining example that leads to streets of gold.
As one, you are His friend to stay
On life’s journey Holy Spirit is your comfort along the way
The LORD is my shepherd; I shall not want. He maketh me to lie down in green pastures: he leadeth me beside the still waters. He restoreth my soul: he leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for his name’s sake. Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me. Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies: thou anointest my head with oil; my cup runneth over. Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life: and I will dwell in the house of the LORD for ever.
Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you alway, even unto the end of the world. Amen
