Prayer Can Be an Encouragement
A friend of mine asked me for prayer for an ongoing issue. A serious issue. Of course, I said.
What about when things are serious for you? Difficult? Complex? Intellectually, I know God ought to protect and support. Encourage. However, sometimes things are continuing. Ongoing.
What then? Is God still our refuge and strength? Our present help in times of trouble? Will God watch over our goings and comings?
I feel for people who are in continuing difficulties, or griefs. Anxiety and fear are so prevalent in so many situations. .
Our help does indeed come from the Lord. But, why is the situation (or, situations) still ongoing? I cannot tell for sure. I don’t know. I need to trust God, and trust that my friend will be protected, supported, encouraged, and loved.
God willing. Lord, in Your mercy, hear all of our prayers
