As we make our way to freedom, so many times we will here others who want to offer their advice tell us to pray when the temptations come. I could not agree more. There is power in prayer, and even more importantly there is power in the name of Jesus. Here is what I did a lot. Thoughts seem to come at the most inconvenient times and a lot of times we donâ€™t have the ability to go somewhere get alone and pray for strength to overcome. What do we do in those times? My prayers would consist of one word. Jesus. I had already said a prayer at the beginning of each day letting him know that I would be calling on him throughout the day, and when I did I would be asking for strength to make it through the storm. Say his name . Ask him to help you overcome. Over time each victory will get you closer to him and further from your addiction. It works.
9Therefore God exalted him to the highest place and gave him the name that is above every name, 10that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, in heaven and on earth and under the earth, 11and every tongue confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father. Philippians 2 9-11

teetop: Well Amymine712, it has been years since I looked up some measures congress passed a very long time ago. President Kennedy just before he was assassinated in one of his very last speeches he warned the American People just about that type of power.

teetop: Kennedy warned the American people that there are certain circumstances where the President could declare a national disaster and put the whole country under martial law can under special circumstances become a Dictator.

savedbygrace: We are in a very unusual circumstance. Lockdown probably not the most accurate word. Both our state governors as well as the federal government have restricted behoviors that would have caused many more people to die.

teetop: Right-on savedbygrace, though we may not like it, it is true that many people ignore these simple safety measures.

teetop: that though the death toll seems high, I would suggest you look at the numbers a little closer. Take note as to how many are dying with complications from something else. And secondly, the death toll is nowhere near the number incurred in 1918, [/b
