It's well known that having a support system is essential for wellness. Intercessory prayers, positive reinforcement, and the simple gestures of friendship counter-balance illness. Regular attendance at worship services and bible study is often the light breaking through the darkness of disease.
I waited patiently for the Lord to help me; he turned to me and heard my cry. He lifted me out of the slimy pit, out of the mud and mire.
