Prayer is all I need.

Background

Sometimes I feel like I am only the one who needs help.

Calling my friends and saying can you help me with this.

Can you help me with that?

 

Needing Help

I called Patrick last Thursday evening or so.

I said Patrick, I need your help.

He said Daniel, I am about to get on the road.

But, I will call you back.

He called me back this morning and said “I am about to go see Daniel B.”

As Daniel B. is not well.

Further, he will keep my needs in mind.

 

Daniel B.

I reached out to Daniel B. as well.

Through social media, LinkedIn and Facebook.

Daniel B. responded back on Facebook

But, praying is all I really need for healing.

 

Prayers Heard

Yes, I wanted to quickly reply “Prayers Heard“.

I have heard T.B. Joshua say “we can take solace knowing that when we pray our prayers are heard“.

 

Scripture

Basis

I enjoy Damon Thompson preaching and remember his admonishment:-

There is so much that has gone out in prophetic circles and it has not been well with some of it.
And, for me, personally, I need scripture to undergird it.

Yes, I want to encourage the brother, but I will not be able to do so properly, outside of scripture.

      28 Simeon took Him in his arms and blessed God, saying:.
