If You’re a Caregiver, God’s Grace is Enough

Part of learning to care for a loved one with a chronic illness is learning that God’s grace is enough.

Today’s Bible Verse:

2 Corinthians 12:9 (KJV), “And he said unto me, My grace is sufficient for thee: for my strength is made perfect in weakness. Most gladly therefore will I rather glory in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest upon me.”

What the Verse Means:

Suffering uncovers your heart’s weaknesses so that Christ is your strength.

Praying Using the Verse:

  1. Heavenly Father, help us to cry out to You in our weakness and claim Your promise the Your grace is sufficient for us, for Your power is made perfect in weakness.”  
  2. Thank you, Lord, for providing your sufficient grace.
  3. Teach us how to boast all the more gladly of our weaknesses, so that the power of Christ may rest upon us. We don’t understand how but trust in you for our power to be made perfect in weakness.
  4. We ask for strength daily. Give us the grace we need and we pray the power of Christ to rest upon us. The only boasting we will do is to acknowledge our weakness and your sufficiency.

Remember, if you’re a caregiver there is hope. The hope for the caregiver is Jesus Christ.
