I have a number of friends who are going through difficult times, as they worry over family members who are suffering. And because my friends love these family members, they, too, suffer. I send cards. But the only real help I can give is to pray for them.
When I mentioned to a friend that all I can do is pray for my friends, she wisely pointed out that praying is the best thing we can do. It is "all" in the best sense of the word.
Joy for today: praying for my friends.
