How can I be lifted out of dark times?

We often go through hard times in our lives. Can I experience God in these dark times? David, one of the prophets, had many struggles. He called out to God with words like these: ‘save me in your unfailing love’. Jesus also had dark times, especially as he approached the end of his life. Watch how he called out to God, yet trusted in God’s answer by saying’ not my will, but yours be done’.
Sometimes darkness comes because of spiritual forces working against our lives.
At these moments we can do two things: Firstly, we can call out to God to save us, just like David did. Secondly, we can say to the evil presence: ‘Satan, I resist you in Jesus’ name. Depart from me.’ Jesus’ name has authority and power over every evil in the world. Many have seen evil forces depart when they have spoken this way. Please watch the video, which shows Jesus calling out to God in prayer.
After this, please listen to Christine’s powerful story of how God helped her during recent dark times in her life.

Jesus prays on the Mount of Olives

39 Jesus went out as usual to the Mount of Olives, and his disciples followed him. 40 On reaching the place, he said to them, ‘Pray that you will not fall into temptation.’ 41 He withdrew about a stone’s throw beyond them, knelt down and prayed, 42 ‘Father, if you are willing, take this cup from me; yet not my will, but yours be done.’ 43 An angel from heaven appeared to him and strengthened him. 44 And being in anguish, he prayed more earnestly, and his sweat was like drops of blood falling to the ground.

45 When he rose from prayer and went back to the disciples, he found them asleep, exhausted from sorrow. 46 ‘Why are you sleeping?’ he asked them. ‘Get up and pray so that you will not fall into temptation.’

47 While he was still speaking a crowd came up, and the man who was called Judas, one of the Twelve, was leading them.
