I urge, then, first of all, that petitions, prayers, intercession and thanksgiving be made for all people– (1 Timothy 2:1 NIV)
When I was in the hospital after having my cancerous kidney removed, I was in so much pain that I could not pray. Seems crazy but it is true. Not only could I not talk with God, but I also didn’t want to talk to anyone else. Because of the COVID lockdown, I could not have visitors. I told my husband to let people know they could text me but please don’t call.
Even though I could not pray I listened to God’s Word from my phone. I never turned the hospital TV on. I only listened to the Bible from an app on my phone. I didn’t speak to God, but I listened to Him. I was still in His presence.
I also knew I had many people praying for me. Yesterday I received a text and a song that I am sharing with you about praying for others. It brought tears to my eyes when I listened to it. Keep praying for others. We don’t know the pain they are going through.
Here’s the song that I received. I hope you are able to view it.
