in life, we do not know what will happen next. we do not know if tomorrow we will still wake up. we simply live our lives to what we know it should be. and yes, we don’t own this, we just borrowed it from Above.
sometimes, struggles come, miseries arrive, and confusions, doubt and hatred fills our heart and mind. then sometimes we also come to a point that we question our faith. but what’s the good thing about life?
it’s the thought that whatever situation we have right now, God gave us the freedom to reach Him, talk to Him, ask anything in His name, and seek peace, comfort and joy through the power of PRAYER.
but why pray? bakit nga ba? kailangan nga ba magdasal?
have you ever ask yourself these questions?
before, i thought that praying is just simply praying. i pray to God to ask for help. i pray if i am in danger. i pray if i want things to happen. and i pray if only i wanted to do it.
then i realized that praying is not just simply praying pala. now, i believe that a prayer can move mountains and yes, it can change lives. that is why we should not take prayer or praying for granted.
Philip Yancey, an author of several Christian books once said, “If I had to answer why pray? In one sentence, it would be because Jesus did (Matthew 14:23).”
so if Jesus needed to pray, how can we do less?
this time i would like to thank the people who have prayed for my mom. i have an entry on this and you can backread. check here.
i am amazed how God showed his power in my mom’s life. when me and my family learned about mom’s sickness, when she told us that she has a breast cancer, at first we were shocked and didn’t know what to do and react. but then, we just took it as a challenge from God. a test of faith, maybe. and yes, we didn’t falter, we didn’t question Him why, and we didn’t LOSE OUR FAITH. this is the time that we (my family) learned to TRUST HIM ALONE. that in Him, NOTHING IS REALLY IMPOSSIBLE.
now, my mom had her second chemo session last tuesday (out of the eight sessions she will have) and by God’s grace she’s doing well and very determined to fight the Big C.
akala ko before na sa movies or sa teleserye lang nangyayari ito, but then again, this can happen to everyone of us. ito ang reality and we have to face it. so here’s mom, sa left photo medyo naglalagas na rin ang hair because side effect na rin ng treatment, it only means daw na nagtatake effect na yung gamot. at yung sa right photo with her wigs on. thou, it may seem so difficult for her, i can still see the hope reflecting in her eyes.
i was reminded by what has Audrey said last night in the teleseryeng Tayong Dalawa. sabi niya “Sa panahon ngayon, wala ng mas makapangyarihan pa kundi dasal.” TRUE ENOUGH!
Lei thanks also for the encouraging words yesterday. i agree with what you said that EVERYTHING WILL TURN OUT TO BE WELL.
through prayer, we will be able to communicate intimately with God. it would mean more than just meeting and knowing the most POWERFUL persona in the world.
when everything seems to go wrong, just PUSH! when the job gets you down, just PUSH! when people don’t react the way they should, just PUSH! when the money looks “gone” and the bills are due, just PUSH! when people just don’t understand you, just PUSH!
Pray Until Something Happens!
