Faith Journey (4)

After I became a Christian, I wanted to know more and more about the Bible. When I read a story that Jesus told, I felt like He was talking directly to me! God was answering my prayers, and my faith was growing and growing. I realize now that I would soon need a strong faith to get me through some bad times.
By the time I was 27 years old, I had gone through ten surgeries. When I had my tenth surgery, I got an infection and was sick for a long time. Then the doctor said I needed another surgery. The pain was so bad that I finally agreed to the surgery. When I woke up after surgery, our minister was standing by my bed, praying for me. I knew then that I would be alright.
My faith grew through good times and bad times. God was always with me to help me, no matter what was happening in my life. Through all those times, prayer was a very important part of my life.
In our Bible Reading, James talks about the importance of prayer. Be sure to talk to God today.
