Praying for Friends on Tough Anniversaries

Today, I'm praying for a friend and family going through the anniversary of a tough day, the start of a rough period in their lives.

You probably have people in your life who face these dark markers in their lives each year. Pray for them when those days come around, that God will encourage and comfort them. Even if you can't speak with them on those anniversary dates, you can pour God's love and life into their sadness through your prayers to God for them offered in Jesus' name. And God can do infinitely more than any of us can.

"Now to Him who is able to do far more abundantly beyond all that we ask or think, according to the power that works within us, to Him be the glory in the church and in Christ Jesus to all generations forever and ever. Amen." (Ephesians 3:20-21)
