When people help one another in times of catastrophe, hope is revived. The weak become strong, love is unleashed and great things happen.

In recent months, we have witnessed the devastating impact of the Las Vegas shooting and natural disasters. Though these events will never be forgotten, we have seen people throughout the nation come together to comfort, raise funds and volunteer their resources and time to help those affected.
When people come together to help others, more can be accomplished. There is strength in numbers. Take for example how all five living former U.S. presidents joined together to raise funds for those affected by the recent natural disasters. In spite of their political parties, they came together for the common good. Their hearts lead the way.
I had weight-loss surgery recently and I developed a stubborn infection that turned a one-day hospital visit into a two-week stay. My family and friends rallied around me. Still, I was frightened. I asked everyone I knew to pray for me to heal, as Rick's post recommended. I posted my request on social media, talked to the hospital chaplain and my condition improved. When my husband had the same kind of surgery, I knew exactly how to pray for him, thanks to “6 Ways to Pray for the Sick”. Guideposts Magazine Reader
When people help one another in times of catastrophe, hope is revived. The weak become strong, love is unleashed and great things happen. As the proverb states,” Two people are better off than one, for they can help each other succeed. If one falls, the other can reach out and help.”
Lord, help us to unite as one and work together for the common good.
