Church, Leaders, Pastors, Friends, pay much attention!
“So, please, for the love of God stop saying things like this when people need ACTUAL help and ACTUAL advice for their problems and issues.
If someone is drowning because of an issue that is plaguing them such that they cannot even think straight, telling them to "just pray about it" is not what they need in this situation.
In fact, the Bible says something similar to this in the book of James,
"Suppose a brother or a sister is without clothes and daily food. If one of you says to them, “Go in peace; keep warm and well fed,” but does nothing about their physical needs, what good is it? In the same way, faith by itself, if it is not accompanied by action, is dead." (James 2:15-17)
This is equivalent to saying "just pray about it" or "I will just pray for you."
It's important that Scripture actually commands us to not just use our words, but to actually help people and serve them,
"Dear children, let us not love with words or speech but with actions and in truth." (1 John 3:18)
The people in the church are hurting and no one even knows, as Leaders and Pastors it is your dutty to help not by just praying but by taking a time and guiding them. SPECIALLY THOSE WHO ARE SERVING!! They are always giving but not receiving, they need that one on one.
Don't *just* pray about it.
Don't *just* tell them to pray about it.
Don't *just* offer words of exhortation.
Humble yourself and to actually SERVE and HELP those who are drowning in sorrows, in issues, and in problems. Do not judge but offer guidance and discipline.
That's what Jesus did.
Let not the love of Christ that should come from the church to attract and preserve lost souls be found lacking in the body of Christ.
