My friend is going through a hard time with the illness of her mother.
Many people are praying for them. Faye described the peace and comfort she is feeling during this time. She compared it to sitting on a chair that you know is very hard but when a cushion is placed over the hardness you don’t feel it as much. The hardness is still underneath but you are protected to some extent from the hardness. Prayer provides a cushion for us in our trials. We would be more uncomfortable were it not for the cushion of prayer and the comfort the Holy Spirit provides. My friend feels supported and lifted up above the hardness of the situation.
Let us be faithful to pray for those in need as well as ourselves so we experience that cushion of comfort underneath the hard situations so many are facing.
