James 5:13 Is anyone among you suffering? Let him pray. Is anyone cheerful? Let him sing psalms.

We hear bad news all the time. So and so are getting a divorce, this couple lost their baby, a hurricane is coming, they got COVID, and so much more. That’s the bad news.

The good news is the more bad news we hear, the more areas we can get God involved. We get God involved through prayer, faith, declaration, and praise. After hearing bad news, we can immediately pray for that situation. Our prayer doesn’t inform God about the problem. It gets God involved with that situation. It gives Him permission to provide peace and perform the miraculous.

Don’t become depressed after hearing bad news. Change your perspective. Use that bad news as a way to get God involved into your life or the lives of others.
