“Caring Time”

Posted in Friends with tags , , , , on January 21, 2010 by David

On Tuesday evening my wife and I get together with three other amazing couples for our small group time (for those of you who aren’t familiar with “small groups” it’s a bible study). This is without a doubt one of my favorite times during the week. There is nothing like getting together with awesome people to talk about life, study scripture and pray for one another.

Our group has affectionately and somewhat sarcastically dubbed our prayer time at the end, “Caring Time.” This is a time where we share prayer requests and praises. Rita, our note taker jots them down on sticky notes and passes them out to each couple so that we can remember what to pray for and have something to remind us to pray for each other throughout the week.

This last 15 or 20 minutes of our group is the best. I have really come to appreciate the power of being blanketed in prayer by friends and family.

It gives strength.

So while it sounds cheesy, “Caring Time” is incredible and if you do not have people who can blanket you in prayer I suggest that you find some.
