The Best of the Portals of Prayer

Read: Psalm 23

“For you know that the testing of your faith produces steadfastness.”
James 1:3

A Result of Faith

Who has patience these days? What some people call patience is properly called a lack of interest, apathy, or just plain laziness. The believer in Jesus Christ has patience. Faith gives patience. We have probably all learned patience in a manner in which God’s children learn it – through trial.
God puts His children’s faith to test. It seems like He is not paying attention to us or hearing our prayers. Why does God not do something about my trouble? Why must I suffer? Why do others get everything, while I must do without? As long as we think like that, we are not getting practical value out of our faith.
However, if we have a problem, a loss, a disappointment, a misfortune of any form, we should tell the Lord about it and let it go. Trusting that God will do what He needs to do, and we will see our faith is strengthened.

Dear Jesus, we pray that the trials of life may strengthen our faith and bear such fruit as You will be pleased to give. Amen.
