"Lord, don't You care about us?" The disciples were just like us: facing a life-threatening storm, they did the right thing, they went straight to Jesus, but the problem was, Jesus was asleep! Yet God does care! He knows your circumstances. He's acquainted with all your ways. God is concerned enough to change it. You are fully known and loved by God.

We need to give thanks to God for all His blessings. When you meditate on all that the Lord has done, you will be filled with gratitude and joy. Just as the woman poured out her jar of perfume over Jesus, so we too must pour out our praise on Him like oil. It's so easy to lose sight of the blessings in our lives until we become consumed by our problems. Let the light of joy fill your heart as you meditate on every blessing.

Diagnosed with throat cancer in 1964, I faced a crisis in my life. I found myself constantly praying the same thing: "O God, I know You can heal, because of all the evidence in Your Word, as well as the other miracles which I have seen with my own eyes. But ... the problem is ... You can ... if You want to ... Is it Your will to heal me? All I am asking for is a positive yes or no." I picked up my Bible and read from Romans 8 verse 26, "We know not what we should pray for as we ought: but the Spirit himself maketh intercession for us ... according to the will of God." That was it! It came with certainty to me that God had said yes. I would be healed by a miracle.

We must prevail in prayer until God answers. Many are seeking power from God, but what is even greater is power with God. In Genesis 32.28, we have the story of how Jacob wrestled with God all night. At the end, God turned to Jacob and said, "As a prince, you have power with God and with man and have prevailed!"

I was sentenced to years in prison for Bible smuggling; when I had no food, I learnt how to pray; when I had no friends, I learnt how to pray; when I had no Bible, I learnt how to pray. I learnt how to talk to God in that prison. He was nearer to me in that prison than at any time before. Jesus was so near. He is friend! I know Him. I love Him! Hallelujah!

Jesus always knows in advance what is going to happen. And on this occasion, He felt the need to go alone to pray. - It is wonderful to pray together as a body of believers, but to receive strength for each day we need to be alone with God in prayer.

There is always trouble; there are always problems; but Jesus is there in the time of crisis. He gave us wonderful promises: "In this world you will have tribulation, but be of good cheer, for I have overcome the world! Although you have many afflictions, I will deliver you from them all!"

In our moments of crisis, it is so easy to blame somebody else, to make others responsible for our misfortune - this is what the disciples tried to do in John 9, they asked, Who sinned that this man was born blind? Jesus was very simple in His response, the blindness was not caused by the man nor his parents - then Jesus went on to say, "this man has a problem and I want to show you the power of God to solve that problem."

Seven times King and Parliament called the United Kingdom to prayer during WWII. Seven times the whole nation turned out and filled the churches, including those who had not been to church in years and those who had never been. Each time God answered by a remarkable miracle of deliverance.
