Lord Almighty, help us to consider it a wonderful opportunity and a gift when tests and challenges (trials) come at us from all sides. We know that under pressure, our faith life is forced into the open and shows its true colors. So let us not try to get out of anything prematurely. Help us to let it do its work so we become mature and well-developed, not deficient in any way. Lord God, You are our High tower and refuge. Thank You for the strength and power to press on. We give You all the glory for the rest of our days. In Jesus name. Amen!!
