When your feeling down and out what do you do? I have at times spent hours praying to God to help me and maybe you have done the same. What I have learned over time is to start praying for others and not just myself. To encourage someone else when I felt discouraged ….and I will admit it wasn’t easy at first but it does get better. There is something to be said about the power of prayer and there something even stronger when you pray for others before you pray for yourself. All I know for sure for myself is that many times the discouragment passes. ….and its replaced with a sense of hope….its Devine intervention .
