Here’s how this one goes. Currently there is someone on my prayer list that I’m worried about. He is floundering-- lonely, no job, distant. I don’t know the details, nor is it my business find out (I’m not his therapist and wouldn’t want to be), but his attitude of depression worries me. I believe that God wants him, along with everyone else, to be in the God’s Kingdom on earth. But how do I pray for him without getting into judgments about the particulars of what God should do, or what he should do?
Thankfully, this morning this God thought of praying for a God thought to come to my friend came to me. It’s enough for me to do: my friend will know what to do; God will know what to do.
