Be Joyful In Hope, Patient In Affliction, Faithful In Prayer


How can we keep our circumstances from determining the word?  How can we emancipate ourselves from the limitations that life deals us?  The last in the two commandments opens the door for the other two to be true- we can rejoice in good and we can be patient in affliction because we have been faithful in prayer. No matter what our situation is, we can pray with joy because of our hope in Christ no matter what our current situation is. We can remain patient, persevering through affliction, by presenting our requests and intercessions to God with Thanksgiving. 

Prayer is God’s gift to us so that we can be patient and joyful, even when things don’t appear to be going well.
