Whether we like it or not, there will be time in this life where things are incredibly hard for us. In the fall of 2016, I experienced such a time. My nephew, the baby boy who I sent my first winter break from college helping take care of, unexpectedly died. To say I was devastated would be an understatement.
However, as devastated as I was about my nephew’s death I was equally as devastated when I thought of what my brother must be going through. During this time, I created 8 prayer cards for my brother to help him when he found he could not pray. On one side of card is a Bible verse and the other side of the card contains a prayer based on the Bible verse.
I am praying the below 8 Bible verse will bring you comfort when you can’t pray.
James 1:12 Blessed is the man who remains steadfast under trial, for when he has stood the test he will test he will receive the crown of life, which God has promised to those who love him.
Pray It-Lord Jesus, help me to stand steadfast under this trail, for I know when it is over I will receive the crown of life, which You have promised to me.
