Have you ever wondered what would happen if you stopped worrying about your situation and prayed for somebody else? Although, it may seem like the worse time of your life right now; you’re in so much pain, confused and just don’t know where else to turn. Yet, perhaps if you turned away from your problem for just a moment you may have a breakthrough.
Try it out! Close your eyes and pray for someone you know is sick. Or maybe pray for someone who is homeless, jobless, helplessly trapped in an addiction. Maybe pray for a mother in a war-torn country who doesn’t know where her children, parents or spouse are. What about praying for the mother with a sick child, or one that just buried her child? Pray for a family in turmoil who has just lost their home and all their memories. Pray for a child who is lost or in trouble and out wandering the streets feeling like they have no place to go. Since you are going through some things, why not pray for your mate to have the strength and patience to help you get through whatever you’re going through. Pray for your own children that they will be protected while you are going through your temporary insanity.
Not sure what will happen to your problems while you are praying, but I do know that what you give you get…tenfold. Because a prayer for somebody is an answered one for you!
