One of the many good gifts our Father in heaven gives to us is each other. We have brothers and sisters in Christ who will pray for and with us during the many trials this life can bring. Though this world bears the curse of the fall, we are not left to bear these burdens alone. I encourage you to ask for prayer and ask how you can pray for those around you. The prayers of the faithful will bear fruit in your own life, and sustain you through trials you cannot imagine navigating on your own. And your prayers for others will do the same for them.
Each time I had to deal with a difficult situation, I was able to do so. Not because I am particularly capable, but throughout my trip, friends, colleagues and the TCS Moms in Prayer group were texting and emailing to tell me they were praying for me. What an amazing gift being in Christian fellowship has been and continues to be!
Having benefitted greatly from the prayers of the faithful I will move forward into the new year newly committed to prayer. I encourage you to do the same.
Carry each other's burdens, and in this way you will fulfill the law of Christ. Gal 6:2 NIV
Be joyful in hope, patient in affliction, faithful in prayer. Romans 12:12
