Dear Members and friends of St. Peter's Anglican Church,

 

The peace of the Lord be always with you.

 

NEVER GIVE UP PRAYING.

 

In Genesis 32:24-28 we read: 24 So Jacob was left alone, and a man wrestled with him till daybreak. 25 When the man saw that he could not overpower him, he touched the socket of Jacob’s hip so that his hip was wrenched as he wrestled with the man. 26 Then the man said, “Let me go, for it is daybreak.”  But Jacob replied, “I will not let you go unless you bless me.”  27 The man asked him, “What is your name?”  “Jacob,” he answered.  28 Then the man said, “Your name will no longer be Jacob, but Israel,[a] because you have struggled with God and with humans and have overcome.”  Jacob wrestled with the angel of God all night and the angel said to him " Let me go for it is day break." But Jacob said to the Angel, "I will not let you go unless you bless me."  God blessed Jacob because he did not give up. He struggled with God all night until God blessed him.

 

Have you been praying to God and your prayer has not been answered?  Do not give up . Keep on praying and God will answer your prayer.

 

Jesus says in Luke 11:9-10: 9 “So I say to you: Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you.  10 For everyone who asks receives; the one who seeks finds; and to the one who knocks, the door will be opened."

 

May God bless you with your families and friends and protect you in the name of our Lord God and Savior Jesus Christ.

 

Fr. James Kibe Karanja.
