Feeling inadequate

Today, I have a heavy heart. Several of my friends, here and IN, are going through extremely difficult times and I don't know how to help them. Some of my friends are too far away for me to take a meal, watch their kids, give them a hug, or just sit and encourage them. My other friends are in situations that frankly I have no idea how to help.

I am such a "do-er" and as I ask God "what can I do" and the answer comes back "pray", I want to say "ok, Lord I will, but what else can I do?" Why is it that praying for someone else sometimes feels like so little when really it is the biggest and best thing we can do.

So, today I am praying for my friends....and struggling with myself in wanting to do more.....but right now I choose to lay them at the Father's feet knowing He can do it all.....

....take care of my friends, Lord, heal them, love them and encourage each of them today in a way that only you can.....

Oh Sara, I totally feel what you are saying. I read your blog often and miss you dearly (I am not sure I will ever find a Christian woman like you!) My best friend since I in elem school's father just passed away Wed night of cancer (8 weeks after finding out). My heart is heavy also...I have no idea what is going on back in Granger. I will be praying with you!

Over and over your compassion for people slips out in your posts, and you aren't even aware of it. I love your sensitive heart. Since doing the Beth Moore study, it has helped my faith when I pray. Prayer is vital and effective. Keep believing.
