He comforts us in all our troubles so that we can comfort others. When they are troubled, we will be able to give them the same comfort God has given us.
There will be times when the people God brings into your life need a friend with faith. God is counting on you to lift the fallen, to encourage the discouraged, to speak healing to the sick, freedom to the addicted, and comfort to the brokenhearted. Your faith can be what keeps them moving forward. Be known as the friend who takes time to care, who prays when others are too weak to pray, who encourages them when they feel like it is over. With all the uncertainty and divisiveness in the world, so many feel overwhelmed, anxious, lonely, and like they don’t have the strength to go on. They just need someone to believe for them while they’re in the challenge, someone to speak life while they’re fighting the illness, someone to declare freedom when the addiction seems so strong. Be a hope giver, a dream releaser, a voice of victory. You have something more valuable than money, more powerful than drugs, more satisfying than fame. Your faith can bring people healing, wholeness, fulfillment, freedom, and victory.
Prayer for Today
“Father, thank You for the people You have brought into my life so I can be a friend and a source of comfort. Thank You that I can cover them in prayer and speak words of faith over them. Help me to be a hope giver and a voice of victory, full of grace and mercy to lift the fallen. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.”
