Those who trust in Jesus don’t need to be afraid to die. Anyone can believe that Jesus Christ died, paying our penalty for the wrong things we do, and rose again, because he is God.
For the wages of sins is death, but the free gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord (Romans 6:23).
Anyone can trust in Jesus. Even you.
Jesus told his disciples . . . that they should always pray and not give up (Luke 18:1).
“To someone who prays in faith, unanswered prayers are simply the evidence that the answer is much closer.”*
*L.B.Cowman, Streams in the Desert, p.39.
Knowing God’s promises helps you pray.
“For no matter how many promises God has made, they are ‘Yes’ in Christ (2 Corinthians 1:20).”
Knowing God’s character helps you pray.
“Who is a God like you, pardoning iniquity . . . because he delights in steadfast love (Micah 7:18).”
Daniel knew God reveals mysteries, so he asked for that (Daniel 2:28).
When God answered, even the king said, “Your God is God of gods and Lord of kings, and a revealer of mysteries (Daniel 2:47).”
If you know what God can do, you can ask Him to do it.
God said, “I will let the house of Israel ask me to do for them (Ezekiel 36:37).”
God chooses to let us pray. Every day.
God was justifiably angry with his people. “He said he would destroy them—had not Moses, his chosen one, stood in the breach before him, to turn away his wrath from destroying them (Psalm 106:23).”
Another time God said, “I sought for a man among them who should build up the wall and stand in the breach before me for the land, that I should not destroy it, but I found none (Ezekiel 22:30).”
Be the one to stand in the breach and pray.
