In our small group the other night, we spent a bit of time discussing how to incorporate “ministry” into everything we do as Christians. How do we do our jobs, treat the people in our lives, engage in the community? Do we exhibit Christ’s love in a way that we are, in fact, creating a ministry out of everything you do?
One friend brought up the point that in circumstances where it seems nearly impossible to minister to others, we always have prayer. If you see someone in need, someone suffering, or someone just living life and you feel so moved to do something to help, you can (at the very least) lift them up in prayer.
I don’t know what you believe, but I believe in the power of prayer.
That said, these are my grandparents:
You might remember them because just last November, I went home to Wisconsin to celebrate their 65th wedding anniversary. I can’t begin to say the many things I admire about each of them.
I’m writing all of this to ask you to lift them and the rest of my family up in prayer today, and anytime you feel moved to do so. I just feel like there is no such thing as too many people praying for something or someone. And today, (and tomorrow, and for the unforseeable future) my grandparents and my family are dealing with very difficult decisions regarding my grandma’s health and ability to continue living at home with my grandpa.
I love them, and I so appreciate those of you who tune in to my blog from time to time. I hope it’s a beautiful Thursday where you are, and please know that I am praying for you back!
