Help Each Other

Several months ago, a friend asked me to pray for her. She was thinking about changing jobs and wanted God to give her wisdom to make the right decision. This morning my friend called to say she had a new job. She thanked me many times for my prayers.
I should have been happy to hear this news, but when I hung up the phone I felt terrible! Why? Because I had failed to pray for her. I remembered to pray for her for a few days. But then I forgot to continue praying for her.
In verse 2 of our Bible Reading, Paul says to help “each other with your troubles. When you do this, you are obeying the law of Christ.” I don’t think that Paul was telling us to help each other for a few days and then quit. He was encouraging us to help each other every day.
Maybe you have promised to pray for someone and then forgotten about them. Ask God to help you be faithful and continue to pray for your brothers and sisters in Christ.
