I needed prayer but I was reluctant to reach out to my church family for prayer because reaching out to others can be a challenge for me. But I knew I didn’t want to deal with this situation alone in fear, denial or my own strength. I thought to myself if I had not shared my need for prayer, I would have missed the comfort and peace that comes from the power of prayer. As Believers we can stand in agreement and our agreement is a “weapon” against the devil (Matthew 18:19).
God is so good and faithful, and He uses people to help us get through tough situations. They encourage us and help us not to give in to fear. If you are facing something that is rough don’t shut out your community of faith, reach out and ask them to pray, the Bible says bear one another’s burdens (Galatians 6:2).
