Praying unceasingly in the midst of crisis




For most of us who believe in God and the power of prayers, the act of praying or meditating especially when everything is so hopeless has a calming effect that make us just let go and believe that God will help and guide us and never forsake us. 

I believe in prayers so much, it never fails to strengthen me, to uplift me whenever I feel down, bored and worried. It just gives me that peace of mind and contentment when everything seems to be going nowhere and nothing but prayers accompanied by faith and belief saves me from being restless to being peaceful.

I always say this at the end of my prayers “ not my will Father but your will be done, Amen” and I will lift it to our Almighty God and believing with all my heart that what I prayed for will be answered.

How do we pray? We all have different ways on how we say our prayers. When prayers are said deeply and sincerely and done intensely communicating the deepest desires of our hearts to God, believing, trusting and never doubting, whatever it is that we ask for will be given to us according to his will. 

The magnificent power of prayer has been tested so many times over. There’s no doubt for sure it happened to you, and to many people for that matter, in so many ways.

A very good example would be our Lord Jesus Christ.

“ And it was at this time that he went off to the mountain to pray and he spent the whole night in prayer to God” Luke 6:12".   

He spent long hours of praying, he did it with all his heart asking God’s help and guidance and definitely that was one of the reasons why he was able to perform many miracles. All of which were attributed to his faith and belief that praying is very beneficial. It assures us that we can depend on it anytime, we just have to continually believe and never ceased praying.  

Now we are in the midst of chaos, not only for what is happening in general in the whole wide world but especially now that we are hit by the strongest storm ever to strike our planet specifically the Philippines.  She is known as Haiyan.(http://edition.cnn.com/video/data/2.0/video/world/2013/11/07/sot-typhoon-haiyan-philippines-chad-myers-12p.cnn.html) but named in my homeland Yolanda. 

She wreaked havoc, massive rain and intense wind especially in the southern part of the country. (http://edition.cnn.com/2013/11/08/world/asia/philippines-typhoon-haiyan/index.html?sr=fb110813tyhpoonhaiyan830a) At the time of writing, there were already a lot of houses and buildings damaged, massive flooding and a few deaths reported. My heart goes to all the people who are affected by this devastating calamity and I am certain you are too.

For now I can only do one thing and all of us can and that is to utter prayers without ceasing and believing that God with his love and mercy will save us and never forsake us.   


“Rejoice always, pray without ceasing, in everything give thanks for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus" 1Thessalonians 5:16-18"  
 Let us all join forces. Let us all pray



Let's do it with all our hearts and with our eyes closed, letting ourselves feel a close union with GOD that He protects us especially in these difficult times.
