From Joni Eareckson Tada’s A Spectacle of Glory, God’s Light Shining Through Me Every Day
Read by Pastor Karen Crawford
The Presbyterian Church of Coshocton
After leaving the synagogue he entered Simon’s house. Now Simon’s mother-in-law was suffering from a high fever, and they asked him about her. (Luke 4:38)
Let us pray. Lord Jesus, today help my friends or family members who are dealing with illness and other distressing situations. I don’t know all the details, and I’m not sure even how to form my prayers for them. But You know their difficulties right now, every one of them. Shower them with Your help and hope today. Amen.
