"We do not have a High Priest who cannot sympathize with our weaknesses, but was in all points tempted as we are, yet without sin. Let us therefore come boldly to the throne of grace that we may obtain mercy and find grace to help in time of need." Hebrews 4:15-16
In one of the churches where my husband was pastor, I taught a women’s class on Sunday mornings. It was a group of about 12 to 15 women who were mothers of children varying in ages. We would always begin our class with prayer requests and then pray. At first it was very general and “safe” prayer requests. What I mean by “safe” was no one opened their heart to share what was truly burdening them. They were afraid to be vulnerable with one another; afraid that others would judge them for what was going on in their home, or lives.
To continue with this devotion, I'm over at Laced With Grace today.
