It is hard to see what the future holds for us financially, politically or spiritually.   We grow stronger in the face of adversity.  One must not turn our back on God in times of great hardship but elevate our love for Him.  For He is all good and merciful.  The power of prayer, what a gift to us Christians to be able to pray in time of great trials.  We must continue to grow daily in our faith and pray without ceasing. it is said that we must live today as it would be our last.  Focus on Him, pickup your cross and with prayer and action we will win the battle.
