Let Us Pray For Each Other
I have a friend whom I no longer know as well as I once did. We used to have a lot in common but over the years we drifted apart. When we met we chatted about surface things. Things like garden's, sewing and our children's accomplishments. Nothing deep. We never talked about Braden, RAD, Joseph, CPS and the other big things I had going on. Her life was good, things were going well for her. Then she "fell" and needed help. Life was hard for her and we connected over the tough things we are going through. Our situations are vastly different but when I know she is facing a rough day, I can send her a text telling her I am praying for her and she does the same for me. We have very little in common except we both know what it is like to "fall down" we also know how much a friend can help carry the burden.
We need friends to help us when we come to hard places in life, likewise we need them to rejoice with us and vice versa. It hurts to think Braden may never have friends who will help him when he needs it. Someone whom he can call when he is in trouble. He thinks he can do everything himself. He doesn't need mom n dad or Miss Sharon and Mr. Eddie to help him. He can take care of himself. Someday he will be in a situation where he cannot take care of himself, then what? It hurts to see someone so small pushing everyone away and building thick walls around himself. Where will it stop? What will happen if he never gets better than he is now? Will he ever have good friends who will be willing to come alongside him and encourage him?
TWO ARE BETTER THAN ONE FOR THEY HAVE GOOD REWARD FOR THEIR LABOUR ,
FOR IF THEY FALL THE ONE WILL LIFT UP HIS FELLOW: BUT WOE TO HIM THAT IS ALONE WHEN HE FALLETH; FOR HE HATH NOT ANOTHER TO HELP HIM UP.
LET US PRAY FOR EACH OTHER, NOT FAINT BY THE WAY,
IN THIS SAD WORLD OF SORROW AND CARE,
FOR THAT HOME IS SO BRIGHT AND IS ALMOST IN SIGHT,
AND I TRUST IN MY HEART YOU'LL GO THERE
