'THE LORD REVEALS TO YOU, DAVID: I WILL RAISE UP YOUR HEIR AFTER YOU. I SHALL BE A FATHER TO HIM & HE SHALL BE A SON TO ME.'
'Do not be afraid, Mary. You will conceive & bear a son & shall name him Jesus. He will be called the Son of the Most High, & God will give him the throne of David.'
Don't be afraid; fear paralyzes. Faith is confident God's in charge, & hope takes the next sensible step calmly; & then the next.
Prayer is resting in God & entrusting the situation to him. Prayer acknowledges his love for you & does what's best for you, even when you make mistakes.
