I Hate to Be a Burden

00:00

Description

Asking for prayers isn't about putting burdens on people. Its about letting them walk by my side down a path that I was never intended to walk alone.

My email was supposed to sound like a prayer request, but it started out sounding more like an apology. I needed friends to pray, but I hesitated to ask. I didn't want my request to be a burden for anyone.

My husband was having health problems and a biopsy done that week, but I wasn’t sure if it was going to be anything serious in the end. I just knew that I didn’t want to walk through it alone or in my own strength. Fifteen minutes after I sent the email, several friends started telling me they were praying. Not only did they pray - they thanked me for sharing what was going on and for letting them be there for me.

For someone who hates to impose on others, I need to remember that asking for prayer isn't about putting burdens on my friends. It's about letting them walk by my side down a path that I was never intended to walk alone.
