You and I are living today in a society that is literally rife with pain. I heard a report just the other day again of another young student with seemingly such a bright future suddenly deciding to take his own life. So many are on the highways and byways of life like the blind man in the Scriptures. Others are trying to press through the crowd, trying to get healed of an inner agony that is simply too deep for anything but God to touch.
And there are even others like the man in Mark, chapter 2 who can’t get to God on his own, but he had four friends who were willing to take him up on a rooftop and let him down through the roof right into the very presence of God who healed him. Those four friends are like you and I—the Church of Jesus Christ. We have to pray. We’ve got to lay hold of God on behalf of those who have no strength.
It is time for you and I to pray. Join us for worldwide prayer at wwpray.org.
