What if you were the prayer warrior that someone else might need? It’s easy to pray for the people we know and the struggles they face, but is our heart in tune with God so that as we pass someone at the store or in the park or at the office from another department would we hear God’s whisper that prompts us to pray for that person we don’t know?
If you were to ask Google to define worry, you’d get a definition such as: “give way to anxiety or unease; allow one’s mind to dwell on difficulty or troubles.” We stew and dwell on things, often beyond our control to the point that anxiety sets in and then we can’t sleep. Job performance decreases. Family problems begin to brew. Our health takes a hit. Yet, the Bible tells us that we should “cast all our cares on Him for He cares for us” (1 Peter 5:7).
Our sovereign, omniscient, omnipotent, God – the creator of the heavens of earth, the one who tells the stars to come out, the one who tells the sea “stop there you can go no further” — that God – He calls us by our name.
Ruth is another young lady who gave her all. Ruth left her home and family to faithfully remain at her mother-in-law’s side. When she catches the eye of Boaz, Boaz is amazed at Ruth’s loyalty and faithfulness. As a result, he spoke a blessing over Ruth, asking God to repay Ruth and to shelter her under his wings like a mother bird would shelter her young.
Most Christians struggle with their prayer life. For some, prayer is a crisis hotline…kinda like the Batphone.
