    I think praying for a fellow believer in distress is a given, Rebecca. We are all brothers and sisters in Christ, however we respond to the trials we are presented in life, as long as we remain in...

    We know by experience that going through trials/suffering is one thing and talking about it from a comfortable chair is another. Also, we must consider how different the approach of a believer is...
