Listen to Today's Devotion from Max Lucado
When disaster strikes, the human spirit responds by reaching out to help those afflicted. People stand in line to give blood. Rescue teams work for endless hours. But the most essential effort is accomplished by another valiant team. Their task? To gird the world with prayer. For the most part, we don’t even know their names.
Such is the case of someone who prayed on a day long ago. He went to Jesus on behalf of a friend who was sick. No one was more vital than the one who went to Jesus. John writes, “So Mary and Martha sent someone to tell Jesus, “Lord, the one you love is sick” (John 11:3 NCV). Someone went to Jesus on behalf of Lazarus. And because someone went, Jesus responded! Would you be someone for someone else?
From Mike: The problems from COVID 19 are causing death, sickness, unemployment and finanical hardship so pray for others. Even if you don't know anyone personally that's been affected, offer up prayers. The recent hurricane has caused death and so much destruction so please pray. The news shows people in long lines trying to get food and water. Imangine yourself in that line and then your home is completely gone. You must deal with the insurance company and find an honest contractor. Life is upside down. Please pray for these people.
