Help from the Lord in Difficult Times

Take refuge in the Lord

Show me the wonders of your great love, you who save by your right hand those who take refuge in you from their foes. Psalm 17:7 NIV

The Lord is pouring out His great power and love for us right now.

Many of us have been walking through difficult times, but we can take refuge in the Lord.

Using Psalm 33 to proclaim what you need from the Lord

Sing joyfully to the Lord, you righteous; it is fitting for the upright to praise him. Psalm 33:1 NIV

I’ve been using Psalm 33 and other Bible verses to pray and proclaim the Lord’s great love and power over us.

An important aspect of this is to sing and praise the Lord no matter how things look.

Sing to him a new song; play skillfully, and shout for joy. Psalm 33:3 NIV

If you’re going through difficult times, you can sing and worship the Lord. Sing a new song to the Lord!

For he spoke, and it came to be; he commanded, and it stood firm. Psalm 33:9 NIV

Psalm 33 has been very important to me personally. The Lord is calling us to use Bible verses and worship to help us through difficult times.

Ask the Lord for mercy 

Have mercy on me, Lord, for I call to you all day long. Bring joy to your servant, Lord, for I put my trust in you. You, Lord, are forgiving and good, abounding in love to all who call to you. Psalm 86:3–5 NIV

As I have mentioned, many of us have been walking through difficult times. We can call out to the Lord for mercy, forgiveness, protection and safety.

More about our difficult season

I am asking you to consider praying for Linda and me, our families, friends and ministry.

Linda and I just lost two very close and important family members in the last few weeks. My sister and her husband went to Heaven. They both suffered, but they were very strong examples of faith.

They both persevered, never gave up and gave the Lord praise all the way to the end.

We don’t always understand suffering, but we know that they are now in a much better place with the Lord in Heaven.

Linda and I have been in a time of transition with our ministry and personal lives. I was able to use the entire month of April for prayer and received counsel.

I know this prepared us to walk through what we are walking through now.

Now for the good news…

Linda Addison’s birthday 

We just celebrated my wife’s birthday. Happy birthday, Linda!

I want to say, “Thank You” to the Lord for my loving wife Linda who has been standing with us throughout difficult times.

As I have mentioned previously, we are in need of a financial boost for our ministry. 

Please pray and ask the Lord about giving to our ministry. You can donate HERE.

Thank you so much, Lord, for Your loving kindness through good times and difficulties. We ask for mercy, safety, protection and greater power. We declare, “peace be still.” In the name of Jesus Christ, our Lord.
Repentance prayer to break through:  
I’m going to walk you through a process that I use.
I find Bible verses, pray in the promises, agree with others, and do deep repentance of anything I might have “in common” that would stop the Lord from moving and blessing us.
It is important to add worship, fun and joy to this.
Think about it, pray about it, and let’s agree together for your needs. 
What do you specifically need?
Here’s how you can remove any strongholds, jam-ups, gridlocks and delays.
Repent, renounce, and break anything we have “in common” … including generational– soul ties, curses and things we may have done knowingly or unknowingly.
We also come into agreement in prayer to break out of things that are holding us back.
We forgive and break off the spirit of unforgiveness. (We don’t have to agree with the person or people who wanted us to forgive them.) 
Lord, I ask forgiveness if I have done anything that has hurt anyone … If I’ve come into agreement with anything, knowingly or unknowingly, against this message. Or anything that would stop You from breaking us out of the old season and into the new.
Also, I ask forgiveness for any misuse of anything You’ve given me, known or unknown.
Lord, we ask You to flush out the things that are unseen and send them to where the true Jesus sends them.
In the name of the true Lord Jesus. Amen.
