Only by prayer

Tearful, she called me, so we could pray together. Her pregnant daughter, my daughter-in-law, was very sick.

If we lived in the same town, we’d make meals and shop and clean and give lots of advice. But we don’t. We live halfway around the world. Prayer is all we can give.

After we talked, I read that Jesus said, “This kind can come out only by prayer” (Mark 9:29).

Sometimes it is best that prayer is all we can give.
