Say a Prayer For Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner

Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner have been in the news a lot lately for their relationship troubles and for his substance abuse.  

(I feel bad for celebrities, for how everything they do is picked apart by the media and dissected under a microscope by millions of people.  That's got to make your problems 100 times worse.)

Say a prayer for them.  No one is outside of the reach of Jesus.  No one is beyond His forgiveness, grace, mercy, and love.  Pray that God protects them with His heavenly angels and keeps evil away, that He puts His truth right in their paths and gives them eyes to see and ears to hear.  Pray for healing in their relationship, too.


And whenever you hear of any other celebrity or neighbor or friend struggling, say a prayer for them, too.  It's those who struggle who are closest to finding the Lord - because we know how much we need His help.  

Prayer does matter!  It's not just a formality.  

And if you're like me and tend to say "I'll pray for you" but then you forget later to actually pray for them, do what I do:

If you say, "I'll pray for you," do it immediately in your head, even as you are still with the person.  Or right after you say goodbye and walk away.  You can always pray again later in more depth, but at least you did what you said you'd do.  And prayer - no matter how short or long - makes a difference.  It brings about God's plan and Will.  (Click here for more on prayer.)
