When loved ones are sick or experiencing great trials, we sometimes feel helpless to do anything except pray. And while prayer might be our only option, I think we are remiss if we believe that prayer is somehow a second-rate course of action. Jesus taught us to pray, and the greatest, most defining event in history--His atonement--was accomplished with prayer in the Garden of Gethsemane.
Today's #LightTheWorld topic is: "Jesus Prayed for Others, and You Can Too." Prayer for others helps us develop charity. God hears and answers prayers--not always in the way we want, or in the time frame we want, but He does listen and care.
In your prayers today, take time to pray for someone.
Thanks for the power of prayer.
