Day 24 - An encounter with God

Every  Sunday  people  testify  how  God   is  working  in  their  lives.Today five  young  people  declared  their  faith in  Christ. Their  faces  reflected  such  happiness  and  joy.

Others  came  seeking  God,  desiring  deliverance  from pain ,  suffering  and  bondage.Asking  for  prayer  is  their  first step  of  faith.

Simla ,  a  young   woman asked for  prayer  tonight. She   is  among  the  poorest  of   the  poor.  Disease   has  ravaged  her thin  emaciated
body. She  has   a  myriad  of  medical  problems which  she  was  unable  to  describe   properly. Five  years  ago  her  husband  threw  her  out of the  house. She  is  living  with  her  parents  who  treat her like  a  leper. It  is  bad  luck  and   a  curse  to  have a  married daughter  return  to the  house  of her  birth. They  are   illiterate  poverty crushed  people unable  to  bear  the  extra  burden of  a  sick  daughter and  prisoners  of  superstition  and  false  beliefs.

Simla  came  to  the house  of  God  with  hope  in  her  heart .  Pray  with  us   for  this   poor  oppressed  woman.

"All  who are  oppressed  may  come to  Him. He  is  a refuge  to them  in  their times  of  trouble. All  those  who know your  mercy, Lord will  count  on  you  for  help. For  you  have  never  forsaken those  who  trust  in  you."
Psalm 9;9.10 TLB (BIBLE)

Amrita, real life situations like this make us pause. I'm sitting here with my hands hovering over the keys wanting to type something but having no words come. I'm so afraid of platitudes. I've reached the place where I rarely promise to pray for situations in my community or on the net least my prayer is weak and simply offered out of obligation to a promise made or, worse yet, forgotten as soon as I click to a new page. May God help us all! Look at that gal's thin arms! If I offer a prayer tonight, it will be for you -- for wisdom and strength to see and hear these things with so few practical resources on which to draw to ease the suffering.

Speaking with a nurse who takes care of my Mom, I asked her if she was from India. She said she was from the south part. And as easily as I might have said Jeanette lives in Denver, I told her I have "a sister" in the north.
