Cry or Pray?

By Transit Woman

When men write you off, what do you do? Go by the corner and cry?
Hmmmm….
That is exactly what the devil wants you to do. He wants you to cry and never pray, he wants you to lose yourself in pity, he wants you to wallow in negativity and low self esteem.

You remember blind Bartimaeus? Ok! He didn’t wallow in self pity like you are doing now, he didn’t resort to low self esteem, he didn’t plead for human mercy, yes! I mean, he didn’t leave himself at the mercy of his friends, he couldn’t have behave like you may be doing now. He didn’t give up on himself, rather, this was what he did. Follow me! Open your Bible to Mark 10:47. Sister Adanna, please read for us. If you don’t have your Bible with you, look at the projector below

New Living Translation
When Bartimaeus heard that Jesus of Nazareth was nearby, he began to shout,, “Jesus, Son of David, have mercy on me!”

Now, dear friend of mine, leave all other ways you have been handling that situation and cry out to Abba Father. He never sleeps, he is never tired of hearing our prayers, now that you are weak, he is stronger.

Rest in his words and cast all of your cares on him. (1 Peter 5:7)
