In the midst of tragedy, we often don’t know what to do. Our hearts desire to do something, anything to relieve the pain and suffering of those we love. We often feel helpless because we don’t know how to help. During these times, the absolute best thing that we can do for anyone is to pray for them.
Prayers can reach the deep recesses of the heart, where words often come short. Prayer helps a grieving heart to carry the pain. Prayer can redirect our hearts from devastation to hope and help us to see things differently.
I love it when God blesses me to carry someone in my heart. Praying for them continually allows me to help them. It makes me feel connected to them, even when I’m not with them. Praying for someone else is one of the most beautiful gifts that we can give them.
While we might not know how to help someone suffering, we can cry with them. God understands our tears. He is the great comforter. And He knows exactly how to help them.
Romans 12:15 (KJV)
15 Rejoice with them that do rejoice, and weep with them that weep.
