Hidden ministry "What are u struggling with?"
At any point in time everyone will be struggling and going through different challenges. There's a saying that goes "everyone is going through the same hell, just at different levels with different devils"
The apostle Paul knew the power of prayer when he wrote to the people in the church of Corinth. He said he trusted that God would continue to deliver them from peril “as you help us by your prayers” (2 Corinthians 1:10–11). And when God answered their prayers, He would be glorified as the people gave Him thanks for the “answer to the prayers of many” (v. 11). Paul’s supporters were engaging in the ministry of intercession, which Oswald Chambers calls “a hidden ministry that brings forth fruit through which the Father is glorified.” As we focus our minds and hearts on Jesus, we find Him shaping us, including how we pray. He enables us to give the gift of true intercession to friends, family members, and even strangers. As we begin today, let us remember to continue to pray and reach out to the people we hold dear. ~ Duncan
