Although you feel alone, Do not faint!
“Then he returned and found the disciples asleep. He said to Peter, “Simon, are you asleep? Couldn’t you watch with me even one hour? Keep watch and pray, so that you will not give in to temptation. For the spirit is willing, but the body is weak.” Then Jesus left them again and prayed the same prayer as before. When he returned to them again, he found them sleeping, for they couldn’t keep their eyes open. And they didn’t know what to say.”
(Mark 14:37-40 NTL)
Prayer is the only way through we can withstand the trials and attacks of the enemy; we will fail when we try to do in our own strength.
It is very possible that in times of distress we have to repeat the same prayer over and over again; we must not faint or grow weary of crying out to our Heavenly Father.
Remember that we are in the midst of a spiritual war in which we must put on the armor that God gives us, but where you have to fight and resist and not faint. The victory is only for those who persevere until the end.
Many times in our greatest times of distress we find that those closest to us leave us alone with the burden; but we know that it does not necessarily mean that they are not with us.
