We Need Encouragement!

“If it is to encourage, then give encouragement; if it is giving, then give generously; if it is to lead, do it diligently; if it is to show mercy, do it cheerfully.”
Romans 12:8 (NIV)

We all need encouragement. At the present moment I am sure most of the world are aware of the Covid-19 virus, that is attacking so many countries…with deadly effects. It is a testing time for all, but thankfully we can go out and buy essentials and things we need, making sure our loved ones and family are ok and our dearest neighbours. It is a very strange feeling.

We must all encourage one another at this time of need. In the long run I am sure there will be losers and winners, but sadly there will be many in total despair and sadly many are dying at this time. On the bright side also, I did go for my daily walk and three people said ‘Hello’, which does not usually happen!

Going forward, as the above scripture mentions, let’s encourage one another, generously, cheerfully and diligently. When this is all over, which it will be, we will be better at offering support, thinking of others and carrying on boosting and encouraging others as many will need it as much then as now.

Prayer
Our Great God, at this time we come before you to say thank you that we have you, and that we can encourage others through your word. We thank you for the faith we have in you that this Virus attack be over in due course and our lives can go back to normal. We thank you that you have inspired us to encourage one other with your love. In your son, Jesus’, name.
Amen
