Life is full of moments when we ask, “Why did this have to happen and why did it have to happen now?” It’s easy to forget that God loves us in these difficult moments. It’s vital when we pray to remember the truth of God’s love. Prayer helps us to put on and apply the Armour of God as we’re invited to come before the throne of grace. In prayer, we occupy the space God says we belong…in His presence and love. Prayer doesn’t guarantee that our circumstance changes, but praying in the Spirit (in line with God’s Word) changes us so we can have God’s peace and strength to stand.
