Have you ever asked yourself the questions, Does God really care about me? Does He know what I'm going through?
I'm sure at one time or another all of us have felt like no one cared about us and the problems we were facing in life. Maybe there's even been a time when we thought God Himself didn't care.

IN THE U.S., most students are preparing to go back to school at this time. The start of a new school year can be stressful for them and their parents.
Nationwide, billions of dollars are spent every year on back to school shopping. One popular item is a new backpack. Nowadays, most kids carry backpacks and stuff them with their books and school supplies. Have you ever seen a youngster with a backpack so loaded down that it was almost dragging on the ground? It can be so heavy that the child even leans sideways!
AS KINDLE THE FLAME 2017 came to a close by candlelight, the worship and words from Heaven burned strong in women's hearts. A word of prophecy came through Lynette Hagin:
"There are some of you, not just a few, that are going to be placed in positions that you're going to influence some leaders in the land.
"Get ready in your spirit because you're going to stand before leaders. As you stand before them, it's going to change some situations.

TYPICALLY WHEN MANY of us think of peace, we think of being comforted by the Holy Spirit during a time of tragedy. We pray for peace, and it helps us in our time of need. There are times, however, when the turmoil and anxiety in our lives seem endless. And we need peace for more than just a moment, day, or week.
In John 16:33 (NLT) Jesus said, "'I have told you all this so that you may have peace in me. Here on earth you will have many trials and sorrows. But take heart, because I have overcome the world.' "

WHENEVER THE WORD "confession" is used, we instinctively think of confession of sin. But that is the negative side of the word. There is a positive side, and the Bible has more to say about the positive than the negative.
Confession is stating something we believe in our hearts. It is giving evidence to something we know to be true. It is testifying to a truth we have accepted.
COMPASSION FILLS Paul DeNeui's heart when he visits nursing homes, assisted care, and mental health facilities. He ministers to those suffering from physical illnesses, many of whom are nearing the end of their lives.
When the residents gather in the facility's meeting room, a lot of them are hooked up to IVs. It can look like Paul stepped into a hospital intensive care unit rather than the common room of a nursing home. Many are discouraged, lonely, and afraid of life after death.

WHAT DO YOU do when you're facing trouble? I don't know how I would make it if I didn't have God! Every time it seems like the devil is hitting me left and right, something comes up on the inside—the Word.
My grandfather, Kenneth E. Hagin, always said that the number one reason why people do not get their needs met is they don't read the Bible. God's Word can't make a difference in your life if you're not reading it! If you know the Word, you can act on it and know what to do when you face obstacles.

AS JESUS was preparing the disciples for His departure, He said to them, "In that day you will ask Me nothing. Most assuredly, I say to you, whatever you ask the Father in My name He will give you. Until now, you have asked nothing in My name. Ask, and you will receive, that your joy may be full" (John 16:23–24 NKJV).
I have used these scriptures as a guideline all my life. I always take whatever requests I have to the Heavenly Father, believing that He will grant them. It is thrilling and deepens my relationship with Him as I see my requests answered.
