Someone is Praying for You

I'm the 关怀 (caring) in the committee for our church's Youth Fellowship and I hope to promote the "love one another" environment in the fellowship. So I made these little note cards (with words "Someone is praying for you") and plan to play the angel game tonight. Tonight's game will be slightly different. First of all, this is going to last for a month. I made a little form for them to list down their prayer item and each of them will randomly draw each other's names. Whomever you draw, you will have to care for this person for a month. To start with, they can give the note card I've prepared and pray for this person in their daily lives. If they have the initiative to take further steps, I've prepared a post box for them to throw in little gifts or notes through out the month. I've thought of another challenge for them, that is to find out something bout this person that everybody don't know. How to reveal that, I'll blog again next month. :)
Well, I got my inspiration to run this activity from the Big Book as follows:

The whole Law can be summed up in this one command: 'Love others as you love yourself' Galatians 5:14 (LB)

When we have the apportunity to help anyone, we should do it. But we should give special attention to those who are in the family of believers. Galatians 6:10 (NCV)

Don’t look out only for your own interests, but take an interest in others, too. Phillipians 2:4 (NLT)


So this is not an option but a command :) We should care for others but ESPECIALLY brothers and sisters in christ. Well, I'm gonna urge brothers and sisters to commit themselves to care and understand others, starting from each other in the fellowship. Caring for others is not as simple as people think it would be, as we are naturally self centered and tend to think for ourselves first. Caring takes effort, tolerance, and sometimes sacrifices and conflicts that might hurt. I'm still not sure how to talk them into it (as I feel I have NO skill in talking / persuading or influencing of any kind) but I'll let God do his thingy lah. :) Hehehe.
