How do you Respond?

You’re sitting with some friends and one of them tells you that his neck really hurts; do you:

Tell him how much your leg has been bothering you?

Sympathize and ask how he hurt his neck?

Tell him that you’ll pray for him?

Get up and give him a neck rub and quietly pray?

How often do we make the conversation about us?

How often do we offer a hollow “I’ll pray for you” when we’re right there with the ability to be the answered prayer?

    I would get some of the lavender butter out of my purse and rub their neck ….it is the old medical caregiver in my soul…it remains always. God made me this way…of Course I would ask them if I could do this for them…

  3. Amen to that! We need to pray for them on the spot in sincerity! Not a hollow prayer, not change the subject, not just sympathies, but pray, and really mean it.
