Pray without ceasing. 1 Thessalonians 5:17
Friends, there is power in prayer. The last week, a few friends reached out for prayers. By faith, I am trusting and believing God to answer them as His will be done. Thank you Lord.
Tonight, I share this because sometimes we have to lay aside our own stuff to help those who need help. This morning, someone who dislikes me big time called out the clear blue asking me to pray for them. (shock face)
By the grace of God, I listened and was praying as this person was speaking. The Holy Spirit within me gave words of comfort to speak and helped me put aside all the nasty things I was remembering about this person actions. I learned forgiveness and praying for my enemies a long time ago. Both played a part and truly helped me bless that person today. Thank you God for your mercy and your grace!
God gets the glory when we’re obedient to helping others, even our enemies. I thanked God for my spiritual growth and grace given to me today. Remember Romans 8:28.
Please join me in praying this beautiful prayer for strength to those we know going through challenges.
Thanks and be blessed as we start a new week! (smile)
