2 Corinthians 1:11 Thought/Prayer: When You Want to Help Someone So Badly. Topics: 2 at end.
“Ye also helping together by prayer for us, that for the gift bestowed upon us by the means of many persons thanks may be given by many on our behalf.” KJV http://www.bible.com (Read this scripture and more at http://prayerpivot.com)
Sometimes someone we love, someone in our family, or a friend, needs help so badly that we want to just rush over and take control and solve the problems in their situation. We just know that if we could get involved, things would tend to turn out positively, whereas if we do not, there is great possibility of things being very awry.
But we cannot always step into someone else’s life as some sort of battle-experienced warrior sent to fix problems and bring about beautiful outcomes from a downhill situation. There are sometimes ways we can get in there and help; other times our position isn’t poised to do that.
So what do we do? We probably stew. We probably fret. We probably think of every conceivable horrible outcome if we are not in the middle, directing solutions to someone else’s problem. We can only see the downward slope to things, and any vision upward seems to need us as a center. When we know we are not in a position to really be of assistance, this type of circumstance can make us very sad with a countenance of our heart for grief. And all of this probably isn’t particularly good.
So what do we do?
We ponder, yes. We picture potential outcomes. But the biggest thing: We pray.
Yes, we pray. We continually hold up the situation and the people within it to our Lord. We are not usually 100% successful with turning it all over to the Lord as we wish we could do. But as a day continues on, we may experience some sense of resolution or of a larger sense of giving it over to Him. But God gave us emotions, and they can bring us to a place where He wants us. We may not think that we can be in a place where He wants us because we are so downtrodden in our spirit. But He knows our sorrow over potential outcomes even though He knows it is not necessary to feel this way: He is in charge.
Lord, when we get burdened for someone in such a heart-heavy mode, please bear with us and also bear us up. And we ask that You will help us to pray, and when we do, may You help us turn ever more of our concern over to you as a day goes along. Then, if we wake the next morning, heavy-hearted again, we ask that you will once again take us through the day until we can totally give the heavy concern over to you; or we will see the results of Your working in the lives of those for whom we have this great, heavy concern.
This concern may be for the life of a child in a womb. Help us to trust You here as we must in every other serious concern.
Topics: Pray for stamina from the Lord to see through problems about which we are gravely concerned. And thank Him for the answers when they come.
