Reflex actions

Also known as our automatic responses to situations, the past Saturday we learned that in times of troubles, needs or difficulties, we need to first pray before all else, just like our reflex actions.

We started our evening first with a fun game, a variation of "dodgeball", played instead with balls of newspaper, and instead of playing in teams, it adopts a "last man standing" rule, where the last person not hit with a ball is the winner. Congratulations to the winner...Sue Ann!!! :)

Afterwards, we went into a time of praise and worship, then into our teaching session by Jinho. When people throw something at you, your hands naturally go up to block it. When wind blows into your eyes, you naturally blink to protect your eyes. These are all natural reactions to different stimulus.

It written in James 5:13, "If anyone among you suffering? Let him pray. Is anyone cheerful? Let him sing psalms." It says here that if you are suffering, there is no simpler answer than to just pray, because God will definitely answer the prayers of a faithful man, as it is written in James 5:15, and in James 5:16, it says that the prayers of a righteous man is effective and powerful.

So we should pray first of all whenever we are faced with troubles, as it is the first step to finding the solution to our problems. Have a blessed week people~
