Last week my office was filled with the smell of smoke coming from our beloved Cape mountains. The #capefire devastated a huge area, killing animals, reducing forests to ash and taking several houses with it.
On top of all this, a recent shack fire in nearby Sweet Home farm left another 28 families homeless.
How do you pray for something like that? Perhaps like how Paul prayed for the church in 1 Cor 1:3-4? Ask God, who is the Father of compassion and comfort, to meet people in their suffering, distress, and trouble.
Paul also sees a future where those who are comforted can be a comfort to others.
Is today a day in which you need comfort or to give comfort?
