Soul Sisters Praying πŸ™β€οΈπŸ™

Sophie

As we arrived at the Veterinary Hospital for our fur baby, Sophie, I noticed the lady parked next to us was praying. I know that position well; hands on the steering wheel with forehead resting on it, lips moving with no sound coming out, alone time with God. I knew she was praying. God laid it on my heart to pray for her and with her. I got out of my car and said, β€œ May I pray with you?” then I quoted the scripture, β€œ For where two or three gather together as my followers, I am there among them.” She gladly agreed and shared she was praying for her dog, that was not eating and was very lethargic. She was distraught that something was wrong with her fur baby. We prayed together, and she thanked me. As I turned to walk away, she said, β€œ my dog’s name is Minnie.” We both just smiled.

God wants us to think of others and prayerfully uplift their needs. However, it’s essential to approach them and pray with a humble spirit. No one wants to hear a self-righteous person announce they are praying for them. Remember that you are no better than anyone else. God uses us to strengthen our faith and the person he sends us to help.

β€œI urge you, first of all, to pray for all people. Ask God to help them; intercede on their behalf, and give thanks for them.”
‭‭1 Timothy‬ ‭2:1‬ ‭NLT‬‬
