In a recent event I was wanting to start a prayer chain for an individual. As I scrolled through my contacts I had no one to start that with. Not family or friends. I prayed myself because regardless I know God hears prayers. But the thought dawned on me, having family and friends avaliable to contact through hard times is a need as a Christian.
My contacts lacked connections to others with a connection to the Source I needed at the time. That was an eye opener. It also made me question my surroundings.
My mom always told me, “who you surround yourself with is a reflection of you“. And like mostly all the time she’s right. So slowly I started to remove friends or associates that weren’t representing what I was trying to be. Although I removed a lot of people, I also didn’t replace them with good company.
You always want to have those to pray for you and with you in hard times or just even on a regular. It’s healthy to have a few praying buddies on your team. When you learn to really appreciate the value of Gods line to him, you will take advantage of it. Amazing things were and are done in prayer. We have that it’s God given.
Remember to always look at who you surround yourself with, make sure it’s a group of people who have a relationship with God, and prays regularly. That tool alone will help. Also those who aren’t afraid to let the world know they are his children.
I sure will be searching and reaching out to more young praying people. Not just for praying reasons but to enjoy life with and maybe even witness to others about Jesus Christ.
Have a great day, God Bless.
