2017 may have been disappointing, challenging and difficult for many people. Whatever the situation or circumstance we faced our lives, God may have allowed things to happen for a purpose. We may not always understand why, but God will never give us more than what we can handle. We need to go forward with our lives. Let us devote ourselves to prayer, look for open doors, new possibilities and hopes in 2018. Great is our God who is able to do marvelous things in our lives.
2 Devote yourselves to prayer, being watchful and thankful. 3 And pray for us, too, that God may open a door for our message, so that we may proclaim the mystery of Christ, for which I am in chains. 4 Pray that I may proclaim it clearly, as I should.
Roy Graneau is the full-time preacher for the South Edmonton Church of Christ.
