Bear ye one another’s burdens

Our prayer is that the Lord will use you to help someone who is weighed down today and that He will send someone to lift you up as well.  Let’s talk about that…

Many in the Gospel music family have been sharing and praying for the need of a young man named Eli Fortner.  Our guitar playing and singing friend is in a serious medical situation.  After battling through years of issues, Eli received a kidney transplant several years ago from his Dad, Roger, and has enjoyed great health. But, in recent days his body has begun to reject that kidney.  FB posts and by any means possible Eli’s friends have spread the word and called on the God of Heaven to touch our friend and minister healing.  The basic reality is that he needs a miracle.  It’s a good thing the Lord specializes in miracles.

It has been so encouraging to see the earnest plea’s for prayer.  That is what we are supposed to do according to the scripture, right?  In Galatians 6:2 Paul instructs us to “Bear ye one another’s burdens and so fulfill the law of Christ.”  Prayer is the most powerful tool we have when it comes to helping others.  Paul told the Philippians in chapter 2 verse 4 to, “Look not every man on his own things, but every man also on the things of others.”  We can admit that when it is us going through the problem that it is easy to forget everyone else that needs prayer.  The compassionate prayer for others shows a great faith that reassures us with the thought that “what He’s done for others, He’ll do for you.”

My challenge to you is this; How is your prayer list today?  Just this week I compiled my three lists that were floating in my Bible into one big list.  Many of you are on that list.  Preacher friends, music friends, church friends, lost friends, widows, little kids, those I’ve been blessed to lead to the Lord, all make up that prayer list.  When I got through re-copying that list I began to write down some specific needs of our family.  Know what I found?  My list wasn’t near as long as my anxiety would tell me it was and they were all things that my God is able to supply, fix, provide, bless with, and put his blessing on.  How is your prayer list today?  If you have a need you would like us to add to our list contact me and I promise that we will Take it to the Lord in prayer.  Let’s pray…

Lord bless our friends on this day you have given, and please touch Eli Fortner for your glory.
