We should also, however, never forget to turn to God through prayer and ask Him for help because He is more than willing and more than able to come to our rescue as well as help others who are trying to help us. God loves His children and He wants them to always come to Him, not only in a time of crisis, but in good times as well. In the former, He will help His children through that time of crisis, and in the latter help them continue to experience good rather than bad. For Him to do that, however, His children must turn to Him through prayer and, more importantly, live as He would have them to live so that He can bless them all the days of their lives and beyond.
