Today, the United States of America celebrates Dr. Martin Luther Kings day. Dr. King advocated for equality for African Americans. He did this peacefully with others who stood in agreement. He presented information and gave speeches that urged others to think, pray, and take action to help fellow humans. One of Dr. Kings speeches included the following reminders of how we as a people should consider others.
”I have a dream that one day this nation will rise up and live out the true meaning of its creed — we hold these truths to be self-evident: that all men are created equal.” “Let us not seek to satisfy our thirst for freedom by drinking from the cup of bitterness and hatred.”Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.
This past week, I was not feeling so good and when my best friend and sister in Christ found out, she came to my home to check on me and prayed for me. When others found out that I was not feeling well, they gathered together and prayed for me in the name of Jesus for healing and more. I am thankful that God has placed people on earth who are obedient to HIS word and look out for others especially through prayer.
“Epaphras, a member of your own fellowship and a servant of Christ Jesus, sends you his greetings. He always prays earnestly for you, asking God to make you strong and perfect, fully confident that you are following the whole will of God.” Colossians 4:12 NLT
Prayer is so powerful. I felt Gods’ love from all who took action to pray for me. When we trust in God and HIS strength, we can do anything. Gods’ strength makes changes in our lives.
“Each time he said, “My grace is all you need. My power works best in weakness.” So now I am glad to boast about my weaknesses, so that the power of Christ can work through me.” 2 Corinthians 12:9 NLT
