Answering Prayers

“If we could all hear one another’s prayers, God might be relieved of some of his burdens.”

– Ashleigh Brilliant

I read this today and whispered a silent prayer, “dear God, I hope I relieved at least one of Your burdens today.” And in that moment, I was reminded that this is service to God. This is what it means to “wait upon the Lord” – to become His eyes, His hands, His protection, His tool. To bring His loving-kindness to the people around us, especially those with a prayer in their eyes.

You can see it: a prayer in their eyes, a burden you were meant to relieve.
