MANAGE STRESS WHEN ALONE BY PRAYING CONFIDENTLY

Once in every while you may find that you are all alone in your stressful situation. 


This may be because you have no one you can fully confide in about your situation or you may feel that you are protecting the people you love by not telling them your problems because you know that they already have enough problems of their own. Or your stressful situation may have isolated you and you may find that no one wants to be associated with you. Or, you may be faced by a sudden, urgent crisis in which you don't have time to reach out to anyone. 


Whatever your circumstances, do not give up on yourself and on your stressful situation just because you are all alone. Pray for yourself and pray with the confidence that God is listening to you and He will answer you for the He
promises us that if we call upon Him and pray to Him, He will listen to us. And that if we seek Him with our whole hearts we will find Him. (Jeremiah 29:12-13)


Even if you have brought the stressful situation on yourself, you can still pray with confidence for the Bible assures us that we do not have a High Priest (i.e. Jesus) who cannot sympathize with our weaknesses, because He was tempted in all points just as we are, yet He is without sin. Let us therefore come boldly to the throne of grace so that we may obtain mercy and find grace to help us in our time of need. (Hebrews 4: 15-16)

Therefore, regardless of your past mistakes or your present life situation, pray with confidence for God is listening and He will help you triumph over your stressful situation even if no one else is praying for you because He is merciful and able to sympathize with you in your predicament.
