Preparing to get out of the car to pump gas into her vehicle, my friend “Sandy” reached for her wallet.
NO WALLET!! (Left at home…fell out of purse as walking out the door.)
NO GAS!! AND…not enough to make it back home.
The solution was to drive to my house which was just 2 blocks away.
What a pleasure it was to be able to help my friend! (And I didn’t even have to leave the house, just locate my husband’s wallet.)
What can you do for your friends and family without leaving the house? PRAY!
In John 17 we see the example of Jesus praying for the disciples and for all believers. We are to follow this example.
Pray the Scriptures for your friends and loved ones.
Prayer: Holy Father, protect __________ by the power of your name. In the morning, Lord, hear my prayer, in the evening, hear my prayer. I lay my requests before you for protection for __________ and I wait expectantly. I will give thanks to you, Lord, with all my heart;
I will tell of all your wonderful deeds. I will be glad and rejoice in you; I will sing the praises of your name, O Most High, for I know you hear my prayer for __________.
(From John 17, Psalm 5: 3, and Psalm 9:1-2)
