Pray before problems arise.
July 7, 1979
The power of prayer, individual and corporate, is beyond your comprehension. When you all pray for strength and comfort, those prayers will always be answered. You must always keep in mind the power that prayer has to elevate you and everyone above whatever concerns you. It is important to pray for the ability to transcend problems, not only when the problems arise, but before they are known. In so doing, the spirit acquires a kind of armor or shield of protection and additional strength. It is this strength, developed daily, which enables you and others to cope with or rise above whatever troubles you.
