We are surely in a wild and confusing age. The world seems to be caught-up in a whirlwind of evil, totally out of control. But the reality is: God Himself is the real controller.
Per Bible prophecies: The world is not going to get “better” over these next few years. “Getting a better world” is a nice wish, but …that is not coming to reality on earth until AFTER the Rapture and after the subsequent world turmoil with the Antichrist, and after “the end” with Armageddon.
God actually hears us. He answers us when we pray. He cared enough to come to earth. He cared enough to die on Calvary’s cross for us, so why would we doubt that He cares enough to answer our expressed need? Do not fear – God will hear.
