Often during times of trouble we do not feel like praying, and during times of prosperity we forget the God who gives us all good things. Alistair Begg shows us that instead, affliction should give way to prayer, and happiness should prompt God-centered praise. To respond in this way is not natural – it requires the supernatural work of the Holy Spirit in our lives.
13Is anyone among you suffering? Let him pray. Is anyone cheerful? Let him sing praise.
