I could trust her not to blab to anyone, and she had time to listen. As she did, I recognized in her a deep love for God and a respect for others. She was calm, unlike me; but our personalities fit together well as we talked things out.
The eyes of the Lord are on the righteous and his ears are attentive to their prayer.
1 Peter 3:12a (NIV)
Jennifer prayed for me and gave me some great advice. She also taught me the power of prayer and strengthened my belief in a generous God. I couldn’t have asked for anyone better to lift my troubles to God. She has been a true friend ever since.
Jennifer helped me grow more mature in my faith and taught me how to care for others by taking time to be there and to listen. Now praying for and with others has become a spiritual practice for me, one that deepens my faith and brings me closer to God and to other people.
PRAYER: Dear God, may those who need me find a listening ear. Give me a calm and patient spirit to hear and to help. Amen.
