Prayer is the most powerful practice that you can ever engage in. Without prayer, we are doomed but with prayer we overwhelmingly triumph. When we are tired, we should pray. When we are discouraged we should pray. I am praying for you today as we finish this series, “Never, Never, Never Give Up!” This is Carol McLeod and you are listening to Defiant Joy Radio.
I don’t know what you are going through today, but Jesus is intimately acquainted with all of your ways. In the Book of James, we are told that when we suffer, we are to pray. And, when we are sick, we are told to get others to pray for us. I want you to know that I am praying for you today. I am your friend, Bible teacher and author, Carol McLeod and I love digging into the Word of God with you on Defiant Joy Radio.

Patience is a word that we all love to hate, isn’t it? What about that 4 letter word, “wait” … well today we will be studying those words along with the words “strengthen” and endurance.

This is Carol McLeod, your host on Defiant Joy Radio. One thing that I am sure of after 6 decades of living is that life flies by, doesn’t it?! The Psalmist says that our lives are like the dew on the morning grass. James tells us that our lives are only like a vapor. It’s true, in comparison to eternity our lives are so fleeting but in God’s eyes, you can be assured that each of our lives holds eternal value.
Do you have a critical spirit? Is it easier for you to say what is wrong with a person rather than what is right with them?

James, the little brother of Jesus, is a black and white kind of guy. His letter to the early church is painfully practical and holds a lot of juice for the church today.

James is speaking true Christianity in today’s Bible Study. James reminds all of us who are living in the 21st.
