As a first response to worldly distress, prayer with the Father can be miraculous. It is a direct link to God Almighty, but more often than not, it can be a one-way conversation. Yet, when the weight of the world is on my shoulders, I am blessed (and humbled) to approach the Throne with thanksgiving.
The Prophet Isaiah spoke about good being called evil and evil good (Isa. 5:20,21), and that is a fit reflection of today’s upside-down existence. But is prayer enough when it comes to our brothers and sisters in the Faith being martyred?
“Woe to those who call evil good and good evil, who put darkness for light and light for darkness, who put bitter for sweet and sweet for bitter. Woe to those who are wise in their own eyes and clever in their own sight.”
Isaiah 5:20-21 NIV
