There is no way you are going to escape trials or difficulties in life, no matter how you try to pray more. It is written MANY (not few) are the afflictions of THE RIGHTEOUS (not sinners), but the Good News is; the Lord will Deliver us out of Them ALL (Psalm 34:19).
The secret of surviving Tough times is your response to them! The problem is not the problem; the problem is your reaction to the problem. You can either allow it to become a problem indeed or it becomes an opportunity when you see it as a Challenge.
