“Be There for Them”

Kathryn Elizabeth Clarke

Many of us have our problems; Some – which plague us day by day. We don't want to trouble others, So we handle them our way. Sometimes, we just keep them inward; (Never does that heal the pain.) It just makes them burrow deeper, Only to come up again. Should there be some small detection On our part of someone's trial, Pray that they will look to Jesus. He's the Keeper of life's smiles. We don't have to know their business, But through prayer, can share their load - Just by lifting them in earnest. Only God need to be told. And encourage them sincerely. God will lay upon our hearts - What to do to make things better; Some kindness we can impart.

And above all, just be faithful. Be that friend who's there, and true. Reassure them, God is able, And will surely bring them through. ….......

James 5:16

Confess your faults one to another, and pray one for another that ye may be healed. The effectual, fervent prayer of a righteous man availeth much.
