Prayer in hard times

by Colin Dexter

Praying can often feel difficult when we’re experiencing exhaustion, anger or despair. Many of us will have only seen an increase in these emotions over this last year due to the coronavirus pandemic, on top of life’s other challenges.No matter what was going on in the world, Jesus would slip away and pray (Luke 5:16). Even when he was scared (Mark 14:32), Jesus prioritised time with the Father. It sustained him. And we can get the same peace, strength, purpose and joy from following his example and keeping a rhythm of prayer, even when times are difficult.
