Are you feeling bad? Have you been hurt, persecuted...well the Bible says "all who desire to live godly in Christ Jesus will suffer persecution." [2Timothy 3:12] You will be persecuted if you are a Christian! The enemy can get you down, and it can be very tough.

Does your bible have 6 inches of dust on it?

If you wanted to go to church would you have to ask directions?

Try praising God! I know it's probably the last thing you want to do, but think about it, this is exactly what the enemy wants, depressed Christians! Christians who won't show Christ's love in the world, who won't tell others about God! Just start praising Him! No matter what the circumstances, just say "thank you Jesus!" You know He's paid the price for you... "Resist the devil and he will flee you" [James 4:7]

Thank you Jesus, praise your holy name!! Try it! "The Lord inhabits the praise of His people" Don't you want to be in the habitation of the Lord? Get in His Spirit! Praise Him!

Thank you Jesus--you saved me--you delivered me from Satan's kingdom--he doesn't have any power over a child of God--I am God's child--get thee behind me !

We are praying with you too! Lift up your hands and pray--He wasn't afraid to lift His hands upon the cross for you!

Tell the devil--"Greater is He that is in you than he that is in the world" [1John 4:4]

"Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? Shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword? As it is written: "For your sake we are killed all the day long; We are accounted as sheep for the slaughter." Yet in all these things we are more than conquerors through Him who loved us. For I am persuaded that neither death or life, nor angels nor principalities nor powers, nor things present nor things to come, nor height nor depth, nor any other created thing, shall be able to separate us from the love of God which is in Christ Jesus our Lord." [Romans 8:35-39]

How important is it to praise God? What miracles can occur when the praises go up? Take a look at an illustration from the book of Acts....
