As we pray for the needy around us, God may open our eyes to what we can do to help in that immediate need. He may use us as an answer to our own prayers.
As we pray for the need of education of falsely informed people concerning abortion, one answer may be that, along with others in our church, we do something practical about it such as having an educational series, or purchasing a house to open as a crisis pregnancy center.
As we pray for families with older people or handicapped children to care for, we may need to prepare a place where perhaps one day or more a week these children could come to play or to have a special treat such as wheelchair races or whatever your imagination can think up!
