Romans 15:23-33

At times we may feel alone. We may feel like the only one struggling, the only one wrestling with fear or discouragement. The truth is, we are not alone. We belong to the family of God. We are bound by one Lord, one faith, and one baptism. We are held together by our need for grace and a desire to be faithful to Jesus Christ. We are also “surrounded by such a great cloud of witnesses” who have gone before us and finished their race faithfully (Hebrews 12:1a).

Within this family there are many who struggle, many who fail, and many who need a helping hand. We are not alone in this fight. One way to demonstrate our comradery is to pray for one another.

Do you know someone carrying a burden? Do you know someone dealing with disappointment? Is anyone in your life struggling in their faith or body or relationships? Pray for them.

Model what it means to be an intercessor. Teach others to do the same so that in the moments you feel most alone, there will be people praying for you too.
