It’s been rough lately around here. Tim has been away from home for 5 weeks straight now – a record of sorts – and it will be another week still before we see him again.
And I find myself in deep.
But yesterday, I started praying for some friends and some people I don’t really know. There was an answer to one of those prayers within a few hours. And it lifted me up.
Not the thought that God answered one of my prayers, but the fact that I got out of myself and prayed for someone else. The bonus was an answered prayer (although perhaps you might say it was hundreds of answered prayers as so many of us were praying about the same circumstance).
It’s often said that one of the surest cures for depression is to do something positive for someone else. I’m not in a place where I can offer very much, but I can offer prayer.
If you or someone you know needs prayer, I would be so blessed to help pray. You can post here in the comments or you can send me an email.
