Yesterday's musing briefly mentioned LIFT as one way for Christians to ease the suffering of people, stand up for the sanctity of human life, and oppose euthanasia. Today we'll pray for people who volunteer to help people -- primarily those with chronic or terminal illnesses, and their loved ones -- in programs like this through local churches.
For instance, the Care Coordinator at Grandville Baptist Church (MI), Ruth TenBrink, has recently linked five volunteers with five care recipients. Pray that these will be mutually encouraging partnerships, and that the individuals will find sustaining grace from the Lord in difficult experiences.
There are also LIFT-type ministries at other Michigan churches: Calvary Baptist Church in Greenville, Jenison Bible Church, and Calvary Baptist in Grand Rapids. (If your church has a similar program, please let us know. We'd love to pray for you, too!)
