PRAYING FOR OTHERS
A CASCADING FEATHER FROM
Eight months have passed since my very dear friend told me she had three weeks to live. I almost went into shock thinking that can’t be; we are walking buddies and much more. I cried and prayed ‘without ceasing’ until she took my hand and said, ‘I believe in God, don’t worry.’
Praying for others who are suffering is a powerful gift from God in that the pray-er accepts the pray-ee’s pains to be touched by the Holy Spirit for that person to receive new light, new courage, as sweet Margit did receive. You see, Margit had set aside her faith for many years but was given the grace to return to faith in the end.
Every day Margit inspires me to write from the heart.
