Pray, but also act

PEANUTS by Charles Schultz

As handmaidens for the LORD we must remember to open our eyes to actually see what the needs are of the people around us.  As women we are able to evaluate and then interact where we can best help others, but our lives are also full now days so it is easy to say we will pray.  Hopefully we will follow through and actually pray for them. 

But what can be done right then?  Let's begin to pay close attention so that we can meet people where they are and minister to them in solid ways along with our prayers.  How beautiful it will be to see what the harvest of our ministering will be in glory!
"If a brother or sister is without clothing and in need of daily food, and one of you says to them, 'Go in peace, be warmed and be filled,' and yet you do not give them what is necessary for their body, what use is that?   Even so faith, if it has no works, is dead, being by itself."
James 2:15-17
