Small group leadership TIP: Time of Crisis

Hospice care, COVID or ICU isolation… Medical crises are an opportunity for us to demonstrate God’s love. “Prayers and presence.” Just being there means so much to the critically ill and their families. I’ve also found that reading “God’s Promises” Bible verses are very encouraging to all within hearing (especially the afflicted), as well as brief, sincere prayers. It doesn’t have to be eloquent, just heartfelt. “Prayers and presence.”

A great reference source to have handy (I keep a copy in my car and another near the phone) is the small book of topically arranged Bible verses “God’s Promises – for every day”, Thomas Nelson publishers, around $5.
