Rejoice in hope, be patient in tribelation, be constant in prayer. Likewise, the Spirit helps us in our weakness. For we do not know what to pray for, how we should do it, but the Spirit Himself penetrates for us with moans too deep for words. Dependence and trust in God are vital. Submitting to Him and His authority is essential. None of us arrived; Everyone is on a lifelong path of faith, trusting that our Lord and Savior will lead the way. Do not be wise in your own eyes, but make your requests known to God in all things through prayer and supplication. Humility does not mean allowing oneself to dominate one`s life. Humble yourself under God`s mighty hand, and in due course He will lift you up. Keep your eyes on Jesus, the author and finisher of your faith. Prayer is related to our submission to God and His perfect authority over our lives. Matthew 7:1 is a very popular verse for unbelievers to abuse.
