For Friends Who Suffer

Three times Paul begged the Lord to take the tormenting thorn away (from 2 Corinthians 12:8).”

Can you see yourself doing the same thing? Pleading, begging for release from sorrow or suffering. Can you see God bending down to listen? Can you hear him saying to you, “My grace is all you need. My grace is sufficient for you. My grace is enough. My power works best in weakness (2 Corinthians 12:9 NLT, ESV, MSG).”
