It’s a good thing to ask for help when you need it… and do I need it. 

Hi, I’m Joni Eareckson Tada, and I need help. It’s a good thing to ask for help when you need it… and do I need it. Often in the middle of the day, I’ll have to ask my coworkers to lay me down to relieve pain in my hip and back. Sometimes the pain is so overwhelming, I’ll say, “Please, please ask God to help me to endure. I need His courage to go on.” Courage to continue is a great thing to ask for because Romans chapter 15 says endurance is a gift from God. So, how do I pray for endurance? I ask God to keep me, preserve me, and defeat every rebellion or doubt in my heart. I ask God to deliver me from temptation to complain. I ask the Lord to help me face the rest of the day with a good attitude. Sometimes it takes every ounce of courage to live, and live well, maybe for you too. If so, then let us know how we can pray for you at joniandfriends.org.
