as I see the heart felt prayer request come in on my peayer line, and know the heartache that is with them…. Help us Lord

1 Thessalonians 5:18.  Paul writes, "In everything give thanks for this is God's will for you in Christ Jesus." 

I ask in EVERYTHING?

WOW!

That’s hard…..

But he also said Philippians 4:6 Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God.
That means to let You know how we are feeling about whatever we are facing…..  so we do.

We know You have a plan and a purpose, and that satan is not running things, but it is hard to keep that in mind as we face the everyday events in our lives.
