Life can be tough at times, and our circumstances and situations can change on a daily basis. One minute we may be finding life is a bed of roses and things couldn’t be better, the next minute we may find our life has been turned upside down with everything that could go wrong, going wrong.

It’s how we deal with life when it takes a turn for the worst that makes us the people we are.

There is one thing we should do regardless of whether life is treating us well, or we’re struggling to cope with what’s been thrown our way, and that is to pray about it.

God calls us to bring our concerns to Him so that He can help us with them, but He also calls us to share our times of triumph and joy with Him too. In other words He wants us to not only talk to Him when we need His help, but to talk to Him and say thank you when He’s provided us with all we need. This is backed up by scripture in Jeremiah 33:3 (The Message), where God tells Jeremiah:

Call to me and I will answer you. I’ll tell you marvelous and wondrous things that you could never figure out on your own.

Through prayer we can become close to God, and in doing so, He will become closer to us. So share your daily highs and lows with God each day, and He will be your closest friend.
