For We Preach Not Ourselves

God calls me in my meditations and prayers; He reminds me that my mission is to spread love, compassion, and righteous comfort to all whom I meet, all of His beloved children. I can never separate myself from God for I am an ambassador of prayer, as you are, as we all are. We are all blessed to be of God’s flock. When I pray with a brother or sister, we are both manifested in God’s Glory.

Through prayer, I unloosen the psychological sandals of those in need, and we are both found worthy for doing God’s will. All God’s power is given to those who pray for the healing of mankind. We remember Jesus’s words in Luke: “And he sent them to preach the kingdom of God, and to heal the sick (9;2).” We may not be able to heal the sick by touch, but we can very much ask God to heal spiritually. That my brothers and sisters is my mission in life.
