How to answer if someone calls for your help

God’s Word unequivocally indicates that we can have confidence that when we pray, “The prayer of a righteous person is powerful and effective.” (James 5:16). 

​An aspect of prayer is not merely talking to God about issues, but listening to His response. He may give you direction through His word regarding how to live out your faith.  This is why James wrote,What good is it, my brothers and sisters, if someone claims to have faith but has no deeds? Can such faith save them?  Suppose a brother or a sister is without clothes and daily food. If one of you says to them, “Go in peace; keep warm and well fed,” but does nothing about their physical needs, what good is it?” (James 2:14-16).  

If you see a problem in your community, ask God to help you with what to do and be willing to follow through with what He wants you to do to support your prayer. If you know that there is criminal activity in your neighborhood and you know that other neighbors are as frustrated as you are about the activity, seek counsel from the local police department about forming a neighborhood watch.

If you see a child who comes over to play with your child and the child appears malnourished, send the child home with a care package. Simply inform the parent, “we have a little extra; please help us by letting us share this with you so it does not go to waste. Lovingly, your friends…..Mr. or Ms. X.”

So, when someone calls for your help or you want to bring about change, ask God to show you what you must do to make it happen and commit yourself to specific goals.
