I found this poem on a friend's blog...and decided I should post it as well. Sometimes we are the ones that are weak; sometimes we are the ones stronger...in either case, we should know it's time to pray.
Pray One for Another
by Marianne Farningham
I cannot tell why there should come to me
A thought of someone miles and miles away,
In swift insistence on the memory—
Unless there be a need that I should pray.
Too hurried oft are we to spare a thought,
For days together, of some friend away;
Perhaps God does it for us, and we ought
To read His signal as a call to pray.
Perhaps, just then, my friend has fiercer fight,
Some overwhelming sorrow or decay
Of courage; darkness, some lost sense of right;
And so in case he needs my prayer, I pray.
Friend, do the same for me! If I unsought
Intrude upon you on some crowded day,
Give me a moment’s prayer, in passing thought;
Be very sure I need it; therefore pray.
