Although we all face challenges, some situations in life are more extreme than others. When you’re at your limit–and life seems like it’s falling apart–it is very hard to keep the faith.
But don’t give up. Even though you might not see it now, God is still with you. Jesus has not abandoned you.
Remember, God can make a miracle. So pray for it. Also, he can send people to help you. So ask for help too.
Dig deep into your faith. Don’t be afraid. Trust in the Lord to deliver you!

PRAYER FOR THE HARDEST TIMES
O merciful Lord,
Only you truly know how hard life is for me. Only you know how much I hurt. Where can I go but to you?
The pain is so deep, I can hardly bear it. Only Christ on the cross helps me understand.
And so, I hold on tight to my Lord. I offer my wounded heart wide open to your mercy. Only my soul fully knows how much faith means to me now.
I seek heavenly justice, and I receive the peace that only a handful will know, a deep intimacy with Christ granted to those that suffer deeply, as I do. As he did.
So despite the pain, betrayal, and injustice—I will believe.
Despite the hurt, my trust in God is unshakable.
And beyond my earthly limits, I am free & at peace, in Christ, my Resurrection, my Life.
In Jesus name,
