Editors Note: today’s discussion is on coming alongside those with mental/emotional pain. If you come alongside someone with serious issues like threatening to harm self or others please contact 9-1-1 or the Suicide Hotline 1-800-273-8255.

We have been looking at the problem of mental/emotional illness the past several days and a few days ago we introduced the idea of Believers coming alongside those hurting. We learned that means:

  1. Being led by Spirit

  2. Having an attitude of ‘being with’ that person and not fixing them.

  3. Patiently waiting for them to trust you.

  4. Being with them in getting appropriate help/counsel.

  5. Praying WITH them.

Let’s spend the next few days breaking down steps 2-5. As for step one, please review the Cross Word for Friday (

In truth, all the steps involve being led by the Spirit. When we allow the Spirit to lead us each step becomes infused with the Spirit and that will make all the difference.

Tomorrow, step 2- Being WITH them.

Prayer focus: for those who are coming alongside someone hurting.
