Anyone who is having troubles should pray. ... When a believing person prays, great things happen. -James 5:13,16 NCV

The Samaritan Prayer

Teach us to be true neighbors to all in trouble and distress,
- and so imitate you, the Good Samaritan.

I read this today in a Lenten prayer and was struck by the second line of it. Jesus personified for us in his life, his teaching, his ministry and in his death what it was like to be a Good Samaritan.

So today I ask you to join with me in asking the Lord for:
:: a heart that will cry for those wounded on the side of the road;
:: hands that are willing to lift such a one and bandage their hurts;
:: feet that will carry such a one to a warm and safe place and
:: resources to provide for the desolate and hurting in our midst.
This we ask Lord in the name of your son Jesus.

Amen
