Sister to Sister…

i was invited to join our Sister to Sister Prayer Team in church. i was hesitant to say yes at first, but i am glad i did accept the invitation and i understood more why God made me become a part of this team.

my hesitations came from the thought that i feel i AM the one who needs to be prayed for, and i didn’t think i am capable of praying for others. i know it sounded very selfish of me, no excuses.. but spending more time reflecting on His words, especially now it is Lent Season, God opened my heart and my mind through this verse:

2 Corinthians 1:3-5 “Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of mercies and God of all comfort, who comforts us in all our affliction, so that we may be able to comfort those who are in any affliction, with the comfort with which we ourselves are comforted by God. For as we share abundantly in Christ’s sufferings, so through Christ we share abundantly in comfort too.”

it is now clearer to me that, since i get comforted by the love and promises of God despite going through difficulties, i, too, ought to share the comfort God gives me with those in need. in fact, as they say, experience is the best teacher, do you agree? therefore, since i know what pain is, i know how it is to feel almost losing hope and being disappointed, God gave me the opportunity to uplift another sister undergoing the same,, just to be by her side and tell her that everything will be okay because, i know so.

that being said, i now am praying for my sisters in Christ, who desperately need prayers, that God may give them also the comfort and peace that He abundantly gives me as they face their difficulties, knowing that they are not alone in their life’s battle because GOD is definitely alongside them,, this i know so, too. 🙂
