Blessed be God, the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of mercies, and the God of all comfort, who comforts us in all our tribulation, that we may be able to comfort those who are in any trouble by the comfort with which we ourselves are comforted by God – 2 Corinthians 1:3, …

After the Storm

Father Kowalski and Sister Francesca were saying the morning prayers. "You look tired, Father," Sister Francesca remarked when they were finished. "Didn't you have a good night's rest?" He smiled. "How could I sleep with all that racket?" "Oh, you mean the rain?" "It was more like a storm. It kept me awake for a …

It’s Not the Same

When you're comforting someone, do you say, "I know how you feel"? I recently realized that a person really doesn't know how another person feels when my sister told me of the sad story of a mother whose two sons were among the victims of the Malaysia Airlines Flight 17 which crashed and burned in …

Pray for the Persecuted

Answer:   In the same way pizza is very common in the United States, persecution is very common in other parts of the world. Imagine that you live in a country where being a Christian is dangerous.  Imagine your neighbors, friends or family members turning against you because you have accepted Jesus as your Lord.  This happened to a college …

Women of Faith Persecuted

I received this persecution and prayer alert from The Voice of Martyrs Canada.  Imagine your teenage daughter is gang-raped, beaten and her life is threatened because you left Islam?  This is the reality for women who have converted to Christianity.  Their families threaten them, their husbands leave them and they could lose custody of their children.  They …

God’s Got Your Back

“For I, the LORD your God, hold your right hand; it is I who say to you, "Fear not, I am the one who helps you” (Isaiah 41:13). This shows just how personal God gets with His creation.  He is not some Being up in heaven who looks down at us to see what we …
