Titled question is religious one. Few people believe that our faith works in our life. A strong faith can change circumstances of a man's life. But unfortunately most people believe that God is in church or in a mosque only and no way, God can work in our life. Strong faith is not showing in our daily life. Through a reference of Holy Bible we see a miracle when disciples face a big storm of wind and water while they crossing a lake through boat along with Jesus Christ. Always this miracle makes our faith more strong whenever we read or remember.

22 One day Jesus got into a boat with his disciples and said to them, "Let us go across to the other side of the lake." So they started out. 23 As they were sailing, Jesus fell asleep. Suddenly a strong wind blew down on the lake, and the boat began to fill with water, so that they were all in great danger. 24 The disciples went to Jesus and woke him up, saying, "Master, Master! We are about to die!"

Jesus got up and gave an order to the wind and to the stormy water, they quieted down, and there was a great clam. 25 Then he said to the disciples, "where is your faith?"

But they were amazed and afraid and said to one another, "who is this man? He gives orders to the winds and waves and they obey him!" (Luke 8, 22-25)

Terrorism and poverty are two storms now. Both are affecting badly our social life. We are facing terrorism activities all over the world. We can pray with a strong faith to get rid off these kinds of problems. God can save to all and particularly our country from the storms of terrorism and poverty if we pray with a strong faith and believe. This is not right if a family member goes to offer his prayers in mosque or church but killed by a terrorist attack. This is not justice. This work is not for humanity. This is not a way of worship to kill innocent people.

Many people killing their children due to poverty or less of food. This is becoming normal practice and people tired with their financial crises. Suicide is not allowed socially and religiously but there is no way to escape. Many people deceive to others and make thieves because there is nothing to eat at night. Mostly people sleep hungry. Many people are unable to educate their children if they are poor. There are many reasons and difficulties in this regard and yet our country is not able to overcome on the poverty. We should pray with a strong faith for our country and the globe.

Oh my Lord Jesus, I pray with my strong faith and request that you know all circumstances of the globe and particularly worst situations in my country about terrorism and poverty, so please save us as you saved your disciples from the fast winds and stormy waters with your one order. Amen!
