Carried by Friends

Carried by Friends

There may be times when we sense that the task before us is too great for the resources available to us. We may realize that God is our only hope, but we can’t seem to find it in ourselves to pray or to believe that He is hearing our prayers. If you find yourself facing such a time, let the story of the paralytic carried by friends into the presence of Jesus inspire you. Call together trusted friends and ask them to come alongside you, seeking God’s intervention on your behalf.

Some men came, bringing to him a paralyzed man, carried by four of them. Since they could not get him to Jesus because of the crowd, they made an opening in the roof above Jesus by digging through it and then lowered the mat the man was lying on.—Mark 2:3-4

Prayer: Jesus, surround us with people to carry us into Your presence so that we can rise and walk, forgiven, healed, and strengthened. In Your name we pray, amen.
