Carry each other’s burdens, and in this way you will fulfill the law of Christ.
Was your mama on the prayer chain? When I was little our church had the prayer chain. It was a list of prayer warriors and phone numbers. Anything happened to anyone in our church you called one person on the list and it was then passed down to the next person.
I still remember my mama saying things like, “I better start the prayer chain!” when she would hear about a problem. It was often the first she asked when she got to a sick person’s side, “Did anyone start the prayer chain?”
It is a legacy that she has taught to me and I am ever so thankful for.
Luckily, with today’s technology, the prayer chain is a little easier and quicker. As a matter of fact, almost a year ago I started a little prayer group my husband so lovingly dubbed the Yada Yada Sisters. He named us after a series of books by Neta Jackson called the Yada Yada Prayer Group. If you haven’t read the books I would highly recommend them.
As a matter of fact, feel free to swish me to the side and go check them out on Amazon right now. Don’t forget me though. Come back when you are done. Go ahead, I’ll wait.
Oh, glad to see you back.
As I was saying, we started out with six ladies all from different walks of life but linked by our church. I had a problem one night and reached out to them in a group text. The next thing I knew, we were adding ladies and not only sharing prayer requests but praise reports, jokes and recommendations on where to get your car fixed. Nothing is too small or too large of a concern for this group.
I would love to show you a picture one of the ladies sent us today to make us all laugh. It has been a rough week for many of us and we just needed to relax. She, however, would probably kill me if I shared, but let’s just say imagine your worse hair day and multiply it by 1 million…lol! Her water heater went out and so no shower this morning and she has REALLY long curly hair.
I don’t know what I would do without these ladies. They are the true walking talking manifestation of Paul’s orders to the Galatians to Carry each other’s burdens, and in this way you will fulfill the law of Christ. Galatians 6:2 (NIV).
I pray you have people in your life you can depend on like my Yada Yada Sisters. Please know even if you don’t, we are praying for each and every one of you. I pray the Lord gives you strength and blesses you with his peace in every walk of your life.
Many blessings to you and yours,
The Yada Yada Sisters!
