“Praying in a Crisis”
“For because he himself has suffered when tempted, he is able to help those who are being tempted.”
A crisis is often defined as a time of intense difficulty or danger. But it can also represent a critical point, a turning point or a crossroads. So when you feel like you are in a crisis situation, it is at this time you must decide if you will handle it or if you will turn it over to God. God’s expectation is that you ask for His help, even if you don’t know how to ask or what to ask for. All you need to say is, “Father I need you and I can’t do this, but I know you can”.
Crisis time is to let go and let God. Crisis time is to remember that God has always delivered His people out of crisis situations. Think about Daniel in the lion’s den, think about the three Hebrew boys in the fiery furnace and think about how he led the people out of Egypt across the Red Sea on dry land.
If God has delivered others, he will deliver you. For God never changes and He never breaks a promise.
Praying is crisis is just letting God know that you need Him, that you trust Him and that you believe He will deliver you. In other words, it is putting everything into perspective at the critical point, at the turning point at the crossroads, knowing that you are not able to deliver yourself but the God you serve is willing and able to deliver you.
