Praying Is Caring
Philemon 1:4 NKJV "I thank my God, making mention of you always in my prayers."
In the Scriptures, we are taught to love and care for one another. The Bible says to let brotherly love continue. We've got to see more of that love of the brethren manifested today. The world too must see that we love and care for ourselves, irrespective of our denominations and beliefs. Instead of tearing each other apart, the church must learn to correct in love.
One way to prove that we care is by praying for one another. We must begin to intercede for one another more, whether prayers are requested or not. The word of God says to bear one another's burdens; one sure way to do that is through prayers.
Prayers help and prayers work! The effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man avails much. Your two minutes prayer for a brother or sister can do a lot more than you can imagine. We must be concerned about our brethren, even those we might not know in other parts of the world! We must pray that they stand, that they be healed, that God provides for them and that they be delivered. That's caring; praying is caring!
