Is any among you afflicted? let him pray. IS ANY MERRY? let him sing psalms. Is any sick among you? let him call for the elders of the church; and let them pray over him, anointing him with oil in the name of the Lord: And the prayer of faith shall save the sick, and the Lord shall raise him up; and if he have committed sins, they shall be forgiven him. Confess your faults one to another, and pray one for another, that ye may be healed. The EFFECTUAL FERVENT PRAYER of a righteous man AVAILETH MUCH. James 5:13-16. For what glory is it , if, when ye BE BUFFETED for your faults, ye shall TAKE IT PATIENTLY? but if, when ye DO WELL, and suffer for it, ye TAKE IT PATIENTLY, this is acceptable with God. For even hereunto were ye called: because CHRIST also suffered for us, LEAVING US AN EXAMPLE, that YE SHOULD FOLLOW HIS STEPS: 1 Peter 2:20-21. But and IF YE SUFFER for righteousness' sake, HAPPY ARE YE: and be not afraid of their terror, neither be troubled; But sanctify the Lord God in your hearts: and BE READY ALWAYS TO GIVE an answer to every man THAT asketh you a reason of the HOPE THAT IS IN YOU with meekness and fear: 1 Peter 3:14-15. This should pretty well settle it, all you have to do is do the impossible, every day, all day long, no matter what's going on in and around you, rain or shine, beatings or joy. ALWAYS, with a capital A L W A Y S be ready to give Christ ALL the Praise, Glory, and Honour for His Love, Mercy, Grace, and Compassion He has shown to you, in, and with, His Keeping Power and Hope, to a lost and dying world all around you. There, isn't that simple? Oh ya, when you do mess up, fail, or fall apart, get back up, pray for, and get prayed for, for whatever it takes to get back into CHRISTLIKENESS, EVEN IN THE MOST IMPOSSIBLE OF SITUATIONS AND CIRCUMSTANCES, BECAUSE HE SAID TO!!! And that means it CAN, be done. Do this, and here comes the GOoD News, CHRIST WINS AND SO DO WE, Be Victorious, and, Be Blessed.
