Prayer is Not Enough

It is so easy to see someone going through a struggle and feel sorry for them. You see a picture on a sight and click share. Maybe say lets pray for them. You see children in other countries starving feel bad click share and move on to your life. You did feel bad for them isn’t that enough? We know the answer to this question. It is not like I am saying something that we do not know. No, it is not enough. God does not call us to feel sorry for people, but to help them! The pain that we feel for others is something to cause us to act. Feeling sorry is not enough. Praying is not enough. Instead of simply praying God does something, be the tool he uses to do something.

When Goliath stood there to attack God’s people, David did not pray from a distance that God would do something, but rather he knew because God was with him, he could do something. We have that same God here with us, and we need to take action to help. We are ALL called to help those in need. We are ALL called to love one another!

In America even the poorest people have much more then people in other countries. Children are going with out food, people do not have clean water, people are dieing. And feeling sorry is not, nor will ever be enough! We need to stop waiting for someone else to do something and act!

James 2:15-16 If a brother or sister is without clothing and in need of daily food, and one of you says to them, “Go in peace, be warmed and be filled,” and yet you do not give them what is necessary for their body, what use is that?

On that note here are some real children who need help. And a simple way to help them. Give! And never neglect to pray for them, and that God will use you to impact there lives. And if you do not have the money to give, first thing I suggest is look for something you can give up so you have money to give. If you still do not have money to give look for people in need and offer them a helping hand! If you have hands and can give, do both. Be the way God helps people!
