Suffering Christians Encouragement for those who are hurting

12Jul/07Off

"Often, our conversations with God come from our desire to be delivered from our circumstances. In that, we're not much different from the Old Testament saints. However, in the New Testament we discover a new and higher value. While we're not discouraged from praying for deliverance (Mt. 6:13; 2 Cor. 1:10; Phil. 1:19; 2 Thess. 3:2; 2 Tim. 4:17), deliverance from our circumstances is not our highest priority; development in our circumstances is."
--Not Your Patriarch's Prayers by Eddie Smith in Pray! magazine

Luke 22:31-32
"Simon, Simon, Satan has asked to sift you as wheat. But I have prayed for you, Simon, that your faith may not fail. And when you have turned back, strengthen your brothers."
