Are there people in your life who ridicule you or persecute you because God doesn’t answer their prayers? - Daily Bible Reflections October 22, 2015


STAND UP FOR JESUS
 
“Do you think that I have come to establish peace on the earth? No, I tell you, but rather division.” – Luke 12:51
 
       John and Jackie, with their daughter, Jessa, attended prayer meetings as a family and even served in the community. But after eight months, Jessa eloped with her boyfriend and revealed that she was pregnant.
       John, frustrated, asked the Lord why this happened. He became quiet and stern. He stopped attending prayer services. For her part, Jackie thought she fell short of being a caring mom. But despite what happened, she continued to love her daughter. She also remained faithful and hopeful in the Lord, not allowing their trial to draw her away from God.
         Trials test our faith and, at times, even our relationships. Sometimes being faithful to God may set us at odds with those we love dearly. But if we keep the faith —continuously living and standing up for Jesus — we’ll eventually be vindicated. After years of fervent prayer and persistent prodding, Jackie, who had become an active servant, one day proudly came to their prayer meeting this time, with John and Jessa. Everyone warmly and happily welcomed them. Sol Saura (sol_saura@yahoo.com)
 
Reflection: Are there people in your life who ridicule you or persecute you because God doesn’t answer their prayers?
 
Lord, may the “divisions” in our lives allow us to remain faithful to You; that someday everyone will see You in us and we shall be united in worshipping You.
 
St. Peter of Alcantara, pray for us.
