The prayer to God the Father, for the removal of the problems and pressures of life, is a legitimate prayer, and request, to have difficulties removed altogether, or at least lessened, so as to make life a little more tolerable.
Consumed by the blow, speaks to the pressures of life, whatever they may be.
For all pressures, regardless of their nature, eat away at the core of your being, and reduce your outlook and quality of life.
Jesus Christ controls history. All prayer is directed toward God the Father, but it is Jesus Christ that executes all action in all existence of creation.
And that includes all aspects of your life. That is why we pray to the Father, in Christ’s name. And of course all prayer has to be prayed, while in fellowship.
Fellowship is the sphere, where the spiritual life functions, and where our relationship with God, is active.
The result of sin, is a consuming of your life. The same principle applies to creation, to the world, and to the individual.
Prior to sin, Adam and Eve, had everlasting life. That is not the same as eternal life.
But subsequent to sin, a limitation on life, and a limitation on the environment, and a limitation on everything in our world, came into being.
The only counter to sin, and its restrictions and limitations, is the enhancement of oneself by means of spiritual growth, by means of spiritual completion, by means of learning Bible doctrine.
Bible doctrine is the food and nourishment of the soul. And food and nourishment is something that we should consume daily, thus a daily Bible study.
