All of us have different responses to the troubles in our lives. Some of us blame others, some start complaining. We as followers of Jesus ask God to help us in times of trouble. We pray to God in the name of Jesus, because the name of Jesus is a name above all names. When we are in trouble, it does not mean that we do nothing else, we pray and we try to help ourselves and others to get out of trouble. Also ... we do give our lives to God, when we face troubles or difficulties.
