The bible says a generous person will prosper. Now I don’t care so much if it’s financially but I Know it makes our soul prosper. We don’t have to have money to be generous. We can give our time, our love, a cookie, or even a prayer.
I met a guy one time in a housing project, he asked me to pray for him during Christmas time. He was “having such bad thoughts” he said.
After we prayed, he brought me a painting he had painted and said to me “I have to give this to you!” It was a nice painting.
I said why? “Because”, he says, ‘I just know I will feel better if I do.”
He gave me this gift and as far as I know he was fine after that.
I don’t know why he was compelled to do that, but he was having murderous thoughts and it was scaring him. When He told me, it kind of scared me also.
I just said “LET”S PRAY!” I know who the counsellor is. His name is Jesus!
You don’t need a minister license to represent Jesus. All you need, is faith If you don’t have any start today praying on little things, and read your bible!
Oh I forgot to tell you why he asked me for prayer! Everywhere I go I talk about Jesus. I don’t even remember how it came up, but as people oten tell me, Nobody can be around you long without Jesus coming up! (Good!)
I either drive them crazy or they ask me questions OR they run away! Why would we not tell the reason we are okay in this world? If hearing about Jesus drives them crazy, they are not ready for him. Yet.
Jesus is still the answer! so get your brave shoes on and next time someone has a problem, offer to pray with them. And if you need help. Ask me for prayer! I will be happy to pray for you and I won’t judge you. Jesus is not some picture on the wall to me or someone I was ‘told about” He is REAL! And he loves you! and thank you those who pray when I ask (You know who you are!) and I love you very much.
