Spiritual Journey and Comforting Others

I believe that compassion for others leads us to comfort them.

This scripture helps us to understanding how we benefit spiritually from helping others through the most difficult journeys

“ Blessed be God, the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of mercies and the God of all comfort; Who comforted us in all our tribulation, that we may be able to comfort them which are in any trouble, by the comfort wherewith we ourselves are comforted of God” (2 Corinthians 1:-4)

Prayer: God of all comfort, we come thanking you for the comfort you give in all tribulations and asking you to comfort others through us. Thank you for giving us great comfort in so many difficult situations in our lives. Help us to share that same comfort with others. Help us to show tender, loving comfort to others. Thank you Lord that you give beauty for ashes, the oil of joy for mourning and the garment of praise for the spirit of heaviness. May we always glorify you by receiving your comfort? (References: Isaiah 66: 13 Psalms: 103:13 (Prayers that Prevail.
