Burdened for Others

This morning my heart is heavily burdened for friends and family who are facing tough trials in their lives. The needs are so varied and yet, each individual feels the weight of each trial they are enduring. As Christians, we are so privileged to be able to go directly to God with our burdens---He truly is our burden bearer. Without Him, we could not face some of the trials life brings without falling apart emotionally. But God's grace is sufficient, and it is abundant, and it is freely given, and it flows down from heaven as we need it.

As we lift our prayers to God's throne of grace, Jesus intercedes and goes directly to the Father with our request. God answers every prayer! It may not be what we in our hearts want or expect, but the answer will be sent to us by a loving Father who loves us beyond measure and who knows what is best for us. We can trust His faithful watchcare over us and our loved ones. He knows the ins and outs of every situation, and sees what we cannot see. Faith is trusting that God will do what He promises, and will never fail us when we need Him. He will never leave us or forsake us.

Those that have entrusted me to pray for your needs this week, please know that I am praying for each and every one, and no matter how great or small those requests may be, I know that God will hear those prayers and answer according to His perfect will. I pray that God's presence, His love, and His comfort will go directly to your heart and you will know that He has heard and that He loves you with an everlasting love that cannot end.

Praying fervently,
