Growing up in the 90s

TV and movie influences

The Christian Science Monitor

Most people like television. I enjoy programs that deal with outer space. Probably you have some favorite programs too. But what happens if a program makes you feel bad or scared?

I've felt that way. And the thing that helps me the most is prayer. In the Bible, Christ Jesus tells us that we can turn to God as our loving Father, and we can expect Him to help us. When we're seeing something sad or scary, it may seem hard to quiet our thought enough to pray, but one verse from Psalms in the Bible says of God, "He knoweth the secrets of the heart" (44:21). So when I'm not quite sure how to pray, I think of God as my very best friend and trust that He knows what's in my heart.
